New Article: Almonds & Oranges: the Mai Tai’s Unsung Heroes

April 28, 2017

Aloha kakou!

Today I finally got around to publishing an article that’s been kicking around in my head for a long time. As you can probably tell from the title, it’s an exploration of the impact of orange Curaçao and orgeat on the classic 1944 Trader Vic’s Mai Tai. I know plenty of people who have strong opinions on the rum(s) they use in the drink, but far fewer are as passionate about the orange liqueur or almond syrup they use.

As for me, I’ve tried a lot of different combinations through the years, but I never did it methodically until now. So please join me as we try fifteen different Mai Tai permutations and see what really makes the drink sing.
