Best Mai Tai Recipe
Mai Tais are the most classic of all the Tiki cocktails, and we have a real-deal, tasty version for you here. This tastes less like your grandma’s mahjong juice, and more like a proper cocktail you’re not embarrassed to try in front of your friends.

- Juice from about ¾ of a fresh, juicy lime
