  1. Unless it was a typing error, you list 15 ml orange curacao and only 5 ml orgeat. Ideally, the curacao and the orgeat should be in equal proportion (15 ml each). I think you will find the added orgeat with its almond flavor will make it taste less sweet.


  2. Thanks for comment. Actually it was one of the first Mai Tai recipe which I tested. Now in my SupreMai-Tai I use equal amount curacao and orgeat plus I use homemade rock candy syrup (rich sugar syrup with hint of vanilla) instead gomme syrup.
