This mai tai recipe is amazing! I've been hooked on mai tais ever since I had one at Duke's in Waikiki and they make some of the best. I've never had quite as good and few that even compare but this recipe comes as close to the real deal as I've had in the 48 contiguous states! The orgeat syrup is a must for this recipe. I used Torani brand it was SOOO good!!
I made this one for new years as well and it came out excellent. I was unable to find orgeat syrup so instead of making my own I just used straight store bought almond syrup. I will definitely be using this one again

Easy to make and a super way to spend a lazy summer afternoon in a late July heat wave. Thanks for the recipe...

These are awesome! We had the best New Years Eve party while drinking them. You must use the almond extract for the perfection of the drink! The taste wonderful.

I've made this recipe the last two Christmas seasons in a row to accompany several different types & flavors of Chinese appetizers. I couldn't be happier with the results & mix the drink exactly as listed. I used Toroni's Sugar-Free Almond syrup because it was all I could find at the time. Not a fan of sugar-free, but I didn't have a problem using it here. You know you have a great drink when the guests start wearing the little cocktail umbrella garnishes in their hair. This one's a keeper.
