About This Recipe: 

This Mai Tai recipe is a slight adaptation on Trader Vic’s (the inventor of the mai tai) recipe from 1944 - excluding the now rare and hard to find Wray and Nephew rum and upping the curacao in place of the rock candy syrup (which is also known as rich simple syrup - a 2:1 simple syrup).
