This cocktail requires a homemade mai tai mix which should tell you from the start that it's going to be good. Of course you can go the lazy route and use a pre-made mixer, like the one made by Mr. & Mrs. T. But I've got to say, there's nothing like the smooth, fruity taste that comes from the homemade fresh stuff. If you want to serve your guests a masterful mai tai, take the time to really make it rock.

2. Fill a 16-ounce glass with ice.

3. Pour light rum and mai tai mix over the ice.

4. Carefully add a splash of Myer's rum and Bacardi 151 to the top of the drink. These are floaters—do not stir.
