4 minutes
The Mai Tai is a cocktail based on rum, Curaçao liqueur, orgeat syrup, and lime juice. It is one of the characteristic cocktails in Tiki culture. The cocktail has invented by Victor J. Bergeron in 1944 at his restaurant, Trader Vic's, in Oakland, California, US. The name was allegedly taken from maitaʻi, the Tahitian word for "good" or "excellence", although the drink is usually spelled as two words, sometimes hyphenated or capitalized.
