The Mighty Minty Mai Tai

10 minutes

This is a tall and minty variation on the classic tiki drink.


  • 2 oz. white rum
  • 1 oz. dark rum
  • 1.5 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz. dry Curaçao
  • 1 oz. orgeat syrup
  • .5 oz. maraschino cherry syrup
  • 4 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 sprig Mint (plus more for garnish)


  1. Add a light rum and a sprig of mint (4-6 leaves) to a shaker and muddle to release the mint oils
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and shake with ice
  3. Strain over ice and garnish with a fresh sprig of mint, lime wheel, and a cherry

You can adjust the sweetness by using less orgeat syrup and/or omitting the cherry syrup.

Simple syrup can be substituted for orgeat in a pinch, but you will lose the almond flavor distinct to orgeat.
