Homemade Mai Tai Recipe

Nothing is better at convincing you there isn’t a foot of snow outside than one tropical cocktail….or five. This is a Verigan Special–something that we concocted a few years ago when we had too much Sunkist lying around the house.

NOTE: I’ve written everything out in ounces, but you can make all of this using a 1 oz. shot glass to measure.

Mai Tai Cocktail

  • 3 oz. dark rum
  • 3 oz. pineapple-orange juice
  • 1.5 oz. Sunkist
  • 1.5 oz. Curaçao or Grand Mariner liqueur
  • .5 oz. lime juice
  • .5 oz. grenadine
  • 4-5 ice cubes
  • Optional: Mango, pineapple, oranges, thinly sliced
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker for 1-2 minutes, until ice is mostly broken up. Pour into glass, with extra fruit slices and ice for garnish.
