I'm not normally a fan of Tiki style cocktails, since they are usually rum(s) disguised by fruit juice(s). The Mai Tai has a bit of a storied & complex history, the one above is Mr Boston's version of Trader Vic's. Minus golden rum as I didn't have any. The mix of lime,cointreau & orgeat gives quite a good base to the rum, the dark rum float gives it a bit of a hit. Not my normal fare, since I tend to like bitingly dry drinks, but not a bad summer sup.
