In 2007, the Mai Tai was voted ‘Most Popular Cocktail’ by bartenders in a survey conducted by Cocktail Magazine.
History of the drink
Mai Tai is a Polynesian cocktail that was invented in 1944 by Victor J. Bergeron, also known as ‘Trader Vic’. The name Mai Tai comes from the Tahitian word ‘maita'I’, which means ‘good’. The original Mai Tai recipe called for 17-year-old Jamaican Rum, fresh lime juice, orange liqueur, orgeat syrup and a dash of rock candy syrup. Trader Vic's Mai Tai quickly became a popular drink at his restaurant and bar in San Francisco. In the 1950's and 1960's the Mai Tai became a symbol of the Tiki culture in America.
