Hale Pele’s Mai Tai

Rum’s sweet strength is tempered with a zing of fresh lime juice and a pour of almond-forward orgeat in this clean, classic take on everyone’s favorite tiki drink.  


1 ½ oz. Jamaican rum
½ oz. overproof Jamaican rum
¾ oz. orgeat
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
½ oz. dry curacao
Tools: shaker tin
Glass: double rocks
Garnish: mint sprig


Add all ingredients, along with a spent lime shell and 8 ounces of crushed ice, to a shaker tin. Shake until the shaker is frosted and pour into a glass. Top with additional crushed ice to fill the glass, and garnish.
