Trader Vic's Mai Tai Recipe

Victor Bergeron of Trader Vic's says he invented the Mai Tai at his restaurant in Oakland, California in 1944. A rival restaurant, Don the Beachcomber, claims they invented the drink in 1933. The recipe on this page is one of the Trader Vic's Mai Tai recipes, and it includes lime juice, orange liqueur, rum, orgeat syrup, and sugar syrup.
