Mai Tai & Mixtape from London

von: Manafonistas Filed under: Blog | TB | Comments off


We’re so happy to be in London finally. „Dishoom Shoreditch“ has floored us down. Now in Hampsted Heath, in a silent green corner, far away from the hum of the city, talking musics, talking Mai Tai, the Tahitian word for „good“. Former Manafonist Bob T. Bright and „Abbey Road visitor“ Michael Engelbrecht think this version of the tropical cocktail is even better (they’ve just tested it – let’s call this  one „South Pacific sunshine in a glass“!) A strainer, a shaker, a small glass is all you need. Get your grass skirts on! From London with love!


* 1 ½ parts Bacardi Carta Blanco
* ½ part Cointreau liqueur
* ¼ part lime juice
* 1 ½ parts pineapple juice
* 1 ½ parts orange juice
* 1 dash grenadine
* 1 part Bacardi Carta Negra
* Cubed ice
* To garnish: Lime wedge & mint

How to mix

1. Put lots of ice and all of the ingredients into a shaker and shake for about 20 seconds to chill the liquid really well
2. Strain the mix over ice (you could fill your glass with ice and pour the mix straight in, or – to look extra flash – strain it over ice separately and then add to a glass containing fresh ice). If you still have the limes you squeezed earlier, use a wedge as a garnish with some mint
