Snow Cone MaiTai

This Mai Tai comes to us from craft mixologist Sam Holleman who is a total rockstar when it comes to making amazing drinks! The trick with this drink is getting the ice/snow cone to mix ratio perfect. We find that a shaved ice ball around 3″ in diameter works well but feel free to experiment. OK, here we go:


Grab a glass. Not just any ordinary glass but something special, like one of those cool, curvy hurricane glasses and add, in order:

1.5oz SoCal Platinum Rum

1oz Pineapple Juice

3/4 oz Orgeat Syrup

1/2 oz Lime

1/2 oz blue curaçao

1/2 oz Macadamia liqueur

1/2 oz Dark rum float

Top with a scoop (or handful for you heathens) of crushed ice to form a snow cone like top. Top with a good dark rum and a drizzle of grenadine. Garnish with a cherry and fresh fruit.

Serve and smile as your guests stare back at you in amazed bewilderment!
