Mai Tai Information

A Mai Tai is a sweet and fruity cocktail made from rum, curacao liquor and lime juice. “Mai Tai” translates from Tahitian to mean “out of this world.” The Mai Tai recipe was invented in 1944 in Oakland’s Trader Vic’s and has changed greatly over the years. There are many variations of this cocktail including replacing the lime juice with pineapple or orange juice. Mai Tais are loaded with sugar and the consumption of alcohol and sugar-loaded beverages has been correlated to many health problems and obesity.
