  Mixology Research: The Mai Tai
The Mai Tai is one of the cocktails that served to set the foundation of my enthusiasm for trying to understand the "real" recipe for any particular drink.
Mai Tai's at Chopsticks eventually became such a standard, that I no sooner would walk in the door, but that they have one ready for me at my table.
The Mai Tai is a classic cocktail whose original recipe has unfortunately been randomized through a clumsy hand-me-down process, until such a point that many bartenders don't know (or often don't even care) as to how it is properly made.

 Mai Tai Hawaii Cocktail Bar & Restaurant - Bar Reviews - Epicure
Whereas once upon a time setting foot in a dingy pub or chintzy karaoke lounge would have induced spasms of shame in your average upper-middle-class kidlet, these days indignity can be avoided - at least in the eyes of your friends - if you cloak your experience in a thick layer of ironic hipster cool.
And nowhere in Melbourne is better to play the irony card than Mai Tai Hawaii Cocktail Bar and Restaurant.
And rightly so since, despite pretensions towards being a Thai restaurant as well, Mai Tai is all about the colourful cocktails.

 Trader Vics
I originated the Mai Tai and have put together a bit of the background on the evolution of this drink, which has earned worldwide identification and acceptance.
In 1953 the Mai Tai was brought by me to the Hawaiian Islands, when I was asked by the Matson Steamship Lines to formalize drinks for the bars at their Royal Hawaiian, Moana and Surfrider Hotels.
The success of the Mai Tai and its acceptance soon caused the 17-year-old rum to become unavailable, so it was substituted with the same fine rum with 15 years aging which maintained the outstanding quality.

 Catherine Kekoa Enomoto - By Request
The mai tai is "a potent, complex mixed drink made with light and dark rums, orgeat syrup, curacao, orange and lime juices and any other touches the bartender might add.
Despite contrary claims by the late Donn Beach of Don the Beachcomber, Herbst wrote, "The mai tai is said to have been created by (the late) Victor Bergeron, the original owner of Trader Vic's Restaurant, who said he created it for a couple of Tahitian friends.
Hawaii master mixologist Benny Supnet was quoted in 1990 as saying that the art of mai tai making demanded a consummate professional who takes pride in each drink served, the finest and freshest ingredients, and no frills such as pineapple, orange or guava juice.

 Live QnA: I need a great recipe for Mai Tais. Can someone help me?
The Mai Tai was invented in 1944 by Victor "Trader Vic" Bergeron, and became one of the hallmark cocktails at his Trader Vic restaurants.
eventually the origins of this Mai Tai recipe are forgotten, and the bartenders from this bar now think that "this" is the real Mai Tai recipe, and pass it along as such.
A properly made Mai Tai has Rum as it's only spirit Lime juice as it's only juice, benefits from a little bit of orange curaçao (similar to, but not the same as, triple sec), and uses orgeat as it's "secret ingredient".

 Trader Vic put mai tai on the lips of millions
The Mai Tai soon became the signature drink of Trader Vic's, a South Seas- styled bar and restaurant that expanded beyond its roots in Oakland to become an international chain.
Perhaps it's no surprise that the Mai Tai has grown and prospered, because it was created from the very beginning with a lofty goal in mind: to be a world-class drink to fit Trader Vic's world-class reputation, according to Trader Vic's founder, San Francisco native Victor Jules Bergeron Jr.
Beware that if you just ask for a Mai Tai, they'll make it using a pre-bottled mix, and the drink will be lighter and sweeter, with less cherry flavor and a thinner texture.
