60ml of Sober Spirits Rum 0.0%
1 half lime squeezed

10ml of Orgeat syrup



Short drink

How to do it

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 10ml of orgeat syrup, fill your glass with ice and add 60ml of Sober-Rum 0,0%.


Mix well at the bottom and garnish with a lemon peel, a toasted almond (whole or slivered) or an edible flower.

Bartender tips

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. Simultaneously, 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 flavor the cocktail and create a surprise effect.

Origins of the cocktail

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 service 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 directly gave the name of this cocktail.

It was not until a little over 10 years later that the Mai-Tai became very popular and a must when Elvis Presley made it his signature cocktail in the movie Blue Hawaii between 1950 and 1960.
