(A Tiki bar is a themed drinking establishment that serves elaborate cocktails, especially rum-based mixed drinks). Hawaii's Royalty cocktail made of light and dark rums, richness of almonds, lime juice, orange curacao, and an orange syrup.
1.5 fl oz(3 tbsp/ 45 ml) aged rum
1.5 fl oz(1tbsp/ 45 ml ) orange liqueur: Curaçao, Cointreau or Grand Marnier
3/4 fl Oz (1.5 tbsp/ 20 ml) lime juice

0.5 fl oz(1 tbsp/ 15ml ) dark Jamaica Rum or Martinique Rum.

Mai Tai is all about being a pretty tiki bar cocktail. A Mai Tai is always served in a double old-fashioned glass. A stick with a fruit that is always used to serve on top of the glass. Alongside, the garnish is that the mint and lime represents an island. Let the aroma of the lime, fruit and rum come across as the royalty that this drink is.
Here's a good tip for all you Boozlers who read our secret tip. Shreya Ahuja (Writer at Boozlo) who has personally soaked herself in the sun and sand at Maui, Hawaii and had multiple Mai Tai suggests to add sparkling wine in your original recipe to make it a Sparkling Mai Tai. Another Mai Tai, that's a big hit is freshly added Mango flavored Mai Tai. Cheers!
