History of Mai-Tai
Stunning Cocktail #5: Alcohol Free Mai-Tai with the great taste of rum.
1 half lime, squeezed,
1 cl of orgeat syrup,
6cl of Sober-Rum,
Take a Short Drink or whisky glass, also called Old Fashioned.
Pour half a squeezed lime directly into the glass, cut the half lemon into quarters after squeezing and put the pieces into the Short Drink glass.
Then add 1 cl of orgeat syrup, fill your glass with ice and add 6 cl of Sober-Rum 0,0%.
Mix well at the bottom and decorate with a lemon peel, a toasted almond (whole or sliced) or an edible flower.
Create a fiery surprise with the lemon peel.
Take a lemon peel (preferably yellow), which you have just cut up. In one hand, hold the peel between your index finger and thumb and take a lighter in the other hand. At the same time, squeeze the bark between your fingers to release the essential oil towards the lit lighter and the glass. Sparks of burning lemon essential oil will flavour the cocktail and create a surprise effect.
Why squeeze the lemon rather than pestle it?
Squeezing the lemon allows only the good juice of the lemon to be recovered. Squeezing reveals the bitter lemon peel and the essential oil of the lemon. To balance the flavours it is better to squeeze than to squeeze.
History of Mai-Tai
Born from the inventiveness of Victor J. Bergeron in 1944 in his restaurant-bar Trader Vic's in Oakland during the visit of Tahitian friends, the Maï-Taï is today a great classic of any good cocktail bar.
During the serving of this cocktail created especially for friends from Tahiti, one of them, Carrie Guilde, shouted after tasting it "maita'i roa ae" which means "Very good" in Tahitian. This cry of joy gave the cocktail its name.
It wasn't until a little over a decade later that Mai-Tai became very popular and a must-have when Elvis Presley made it his signature cocktail in the movie Blue Hawaii between 1950 and 1960.
