2 parts spiced dark rum [ Captain Morgan 100 proof ]
1 part fresh lime juice
1/2 part ginger liquor [ Domaine de Canton ]
1/2 part orgeat [ if you can make your own, you’re my hero ]
orange bitters [ Scrappy’s Bitters ]
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: I broke a 1/2 full (ever the optimist) bottle of Averna Amaro pulling my rum out of the liquor cabinet when making this. You’ll never know my pain. Now sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat because of this. “The wrong kid died!”
Shake the rum, juice, liquor and orgeat.
[ mai tai’s are served in the ice they were mixed in. Fuck that ]
Pour into a rocks or collins glass filled with cracked ice.
Hit it with a couple cashes of the bitters
Slap the taste out of the mint sprig’s mouth [ that makes no sense ] and tuck it into the drink.
[ Enjoy ]
