A Prize-Winning Bartender Updates the Mai Tai

Want to know what a world-class cocktail tastes like? From the first-ever Diageo World Class U.S. Ambassador Richard Gomez, the Two Cities Skirmish is what he calls a an updated version of the Mai Tai with tequila and gin. Gomez says the key to a Mai Tai, no matter what the spirits, is the layering: This drink starts out with a kick, but finishes light. Impress all your friends with some world-class mixology — we won't tell that you got it from a master bartender. 


Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a lime shell and mint.
