The Mai Tai started as a rum cocktail so popular it was rumored to have depleted world rum supplies in the ‘40s and ’50s. When the cocktail was invented by Victor J. Bergeron — aka Trader Vic – it wasn’t the overly sweet concoction which became popular in the ‘80s, but a simple drink created to showcase the flavor of an aged rum. We like the way both of our rums work together to make a truly delicious sip.
1 oz. Copalli White Rum
1 oz. Copalli Barrel Rested Rum

Shake and strain over crushed ice. Garnish with a mint sprig and for a real flourish, we like to add a lime wheel and orchid.
