Treat yourself to a mai tai cocktail, with the flavours of rum and orange curacao. This recipe serves one, but it's easily multiplied for a party
- Serves: 1 person
- 25ml golden rum
- 1tbsp orange curacao
- 2tsp orgeat syrup
- 25ml lime juice
- 2tsp sugar syrup
- ice cubes
- crushed ice
- 25ml dark rum
- wedge of pineapple, a lime wheel or a cocktail cherry (or all three!)
Step 1Pour the golden rum, curacao, orgeat, lime juice and sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice cubes. Shake until the outside of the shaker feels really cold.
Step 2Fill a tumbler with crushed ice then strain the cocktail over it. Slowly pour the dark rum over the top so it stains the top of the drink a rusty gold.
Step 3Garnish with fruit like pineapple, lime and cocktail cherries if you like.
