Victor “Trader Vic” Bergeron created the Mai Tai in 1944 using a special supply of 17-year-old imported Jamaican rum. Since this rum is no longer produced, Marco Dionysos uses a blend of aged rums to approximate its flavor. Slideshow: Terrific Rum Cocktails

How to Make It


Fill a cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Add both rums, the curaçao, lime juice and orgeat and shake well. Pour the drink unstrained into a chilled double rocks glass and garnish with the lime shell and mint sprig.
