Heavenly Mai Tai

Happy snowy Saturday! As promised in last Saturday’s Coconut Chicken recipe, here’s my take on the ever-popular tropical Mai Tai drink. This is without a doubt one of my favorites to make and drink, but be warned – it’s deceptively strong!

This is a shaken drink, so you’ll need to put some ice into a cocktail shaker and then fill a hurricane or sangria glass with ice. To the shaker, add 2 ounces of Bacardi Gold, 1 ounce of Disaronno, one ounce of grenadine, and four ounces of pineapple juice. Shake vigorously for a few seconds and then strain into the prepared glass. Float 1/2 an ounce of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum on top of the drink and serve!

This is sure to be a hit at any party – or if you’re snowed in on a cold February Saturday!
