Veleiro Classic Mai Tai

Serves 1

This iconic tiki drink is meant to highlight the rum, rather than syrups and juices. Enjoy with Veleiro Blanco and Anejo

Ingredients

  • 1 oz Veleiro Anejo
  • 1 oz Veleiro Blanco
  • 1/2 oz orange curacao
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz orgeat (pronounced “or-zsa)
  • 1/4 oz rich simple syrup (2:1 sugar to water)
  • crushed ice
  • mint sprig for garnish

Mixology

  1. Add all the ingredients to a shaker full of crushed ice and shake for 10 seconds, until the outside of the shaker is frosted.
  2. Pour the entire contents of the shaker (don’t strain) into a double old fashioned glass.
  3. Garnish with a mint sprig and enjoy!

Note Orgeat (pronounced “or-zsa) is almond syrup and also an exotic substitute for simple syrup or grenadine in mixed drinks
