Tasty Tuesday - Mai Tai

Posted by Claudia Moser on 5:52 PM in , ,

Sometimes there are days when you actually want to end up on a quiet beach with a nice cocktail in your hand and do nothing but breathe. Today is such a day, and I was thinking of Lanzarote, sun and Mai Tai.
The Perfect Mai Tai
 2 cups light rum
 1 cup dark rum
 1 cup 151 proof rum
 1 cup orange curacao (orange flavored liqueur)
 1 cup almond flavored syrup
 1 cup simple syrup
 10 limes, juiced
 1/2 gallon fresh orange juice
In a large jar or drink cooler, combine the light rum, dark rum, 151 rum, orange liqueur, almond syrup, simple syrup, and lime juice. Stir and top off with orange juice. Do not use grenadine if you want the true Mai Tai! Serve in 8 to 12 ounce glasses with ice.

Oh yes please! I'll exchange this for my apple tart! It's so grey and cold here, a beach and blue sky would be really welcome right now ;-) Have a lovely week xo

I've never had a Mai Tai. It seems like such a beachy summery drink. :)

I miss Midori Long Island Iced Tea. Yum!

It looks yummy. I would love to be on a beach today!

looks good

Oh my, how I wish that I was sitting in the sunshine somewhere nice and warm, with that cocktail in my hand. Ah well, I can dream!!

Dearest Claudia,
I don't drink, but this cocktail sure looks making you refreshed♡♡♡

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Perfect drink for a summer afternoon

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
