Episode 78: The Mai Tai Forever With Jeff “Beachbum” Berry

Jeff Beachbum Berry and the Mai Tai

Perhaps no 20th-century cocktail has resonated as strongly (or been misinterpreted as widely) as the Mai Tai. This episode considers the Mai Tai from every angle, with drinks historian, author, and bar owner Jeff “Beachbum” Berry (Latitude 29, New Orleans). We delve into his first-hand research into the cocktail’s history and how it became an international sensation. Berry also shares his own approach to the drink, along with the best practices for Mai Tai success.
