This is a Mai “Tie” a man won’t be embarrassed to drink this Father’s Day! I’m not sure where Mai Tais got their girly connotation from. Maybe it’s the ubiquitous umbrella garnish or the fruitiness, but this Mai Tai is opposite from any girly drink. It’s concocted with three different rums and slightly sweetened with Torani almond syrup, pineapple juice and fresh lime juice. I cut a tie out of fabric and stuck it on the glass with a Zot. By the way, have I ever mentioned how much I love Zots? They stick to everything! Read below for the Manly Mai “Tie” – Mai Tai recipe.
