Why make a Mai Tai for one when you want to enjoy this wonderful Polynesian drink with your friends!
Why is my Mai Tai recipe the best? Simple, The top 10% of U.S. Army helicopter pilots are also master mixologists, no "bull," it is a very long and storied aviation tradition since the beginnings of army aviation from before WW I. I was one of those select few. I became known army wide for my “signature” drink, the Mai Tai. Of course army aviators never make a drink for one; all of our recipes will get several people flying at 2,000 ft.! The beauty of this recipe is that you don’t taste the alcohol, the taste is so sumptuous one is apt to drink three of them fast, the BANG!!! It hits you, you are flying!!!
So now after 25 years, the secret is out to all my new friends at Lunch.com, please tell me how popular you become after mixing this delicious libation for your friends!!!

What did you think of this review?
Mai Tai translates from Tahitian to mean "Out of this World." A fitting description for this cocktail. The Mai Tai came to light in 1944 in Oakland's Trader Vic's. There Victor Bergron, one of the founders of the tiki bar, put together this great drink that deserves to feature the best rum you can get your hands on. Over the years the recipe has changed greatly, disguising the rum under layers of fruit. The first recipe is Bergron's original recipe, the second, one of the many newer versions.
