    With all due respect, that’s not Trader Vic’s recipe for a Mai Tai. Trader Vic’s recipe is as follows:

    2 ozs. 17-year-old J. Wray Nephew Jamaican rum
    1/2 oz. French Garnier orgeat
    1/2 oz. Holland DeDuyper orange curacao
    1/4 oz. Rock Candy syrup
    1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
    1 sprig of fresh mint for garnish

    Shake and strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with crushed ice. Add the garnish.

    Please, get your facts right.
