Mai Tai – the classic from the South Seas
From the juices of fruity orange and pineapple, with a good shot of rum and grenadine and lime, this cocktail classic will inspire you. Whether for a party, a girls’ evening, or for a barbecue – a Mai Tai always goes with it!

Where does the name “Mai Tai” come from?
In the Tahitian language, the adjective maita’i means “good”. However, this tiki cocktail was not created in Polynesia, but in the USA. The drink was born in 1944 in a California bar when Victor Bergeron served it to two Tahitian friends. They were blown away and shouted Maita’i roa ae !, which means “The best!” or “Out of this world!”
