“California restaurateur Trader Vic is credited with invention of the mai tai. He served the rum and juice cocktail to friends visiting from Tahiti, who exclaimed, 'Maita'i roa ae!' The term translates to 'very good' and the name mai tai stuck.”

Well done. Could not find French Garnier Orgeat, but I will be on the lookout. Thanks for a proper Mai Tai recipe.
