Summer is Still Sizzling. Celebrate with a Mai Tai!

Mai Tai is a popular cocktail that was invented at Trader Vic’s restaurant in Oakland, California back in 1944. “Maita’i” is the Tahitian word for “good.” The story goes, that one evening while Trader Vic was entertaining his friends from Tahiti he created the Mai Tai. The Mai Tai cocktail is fantastic and simple to create.
