Затеял ремонт… Пришлось свернуть лайтбокс… Так что буду опять постить темненькие фотки с барной стойки :)



45 ml vodka
15 ml raspberry liqueur
30 ml cranberry juice
7 ml fresh lime juice
Shake. Cocktail glass. Raspberry… (if in season, of course)

Nothing special :)

My 100$ Mai Tai

How we may read, the secret of a perfect Mai Tai lays in using the best available ingredients which we can find.

Currently I have following “the best ingridients” for a Mai Tai in my liquor cabinet:

8-years aged Trinidad’s premium rum – Angostura 1919 (34$ per 0,7 l bottle)
7-years aged Cuban rum – Havana Club Anejo 7 Anos (27$ per 0,7 l bottle)
BOLS Dry Orange Curacao (15$ per 0,7 l bottle)
MONIN Orgeat Syrup (11$ per 0,7 l bottle)
gomme syrup (homemade, about 5$ per 1 l)
fresh lime juice (25$ per 1 l)

TOTAL: 117 $ :)

Mai Tai for 100$

30 ml white rum (Havana Club Anejo 7 Anos)
30 ml dark rum (Angostura 1919)
15 ml orange curacao (BOLS Dry Orange)
5 ml orgeat
5 ml gomme syrup
30 ml fresh lime juice
Shake with a lot of ice and some pieces of lime peel. Strain over ice in an Old-fashioned glass with cracked ice, garnish with a lime wedge and a cherry.

The result really tastes for 100$! Very fresh drink with bright rum taste. Maybe it is a little bit sweeter than I prefer.
