Carbonated Mai Tai

Carbonated Mai Tai cocktail, created by Pint & Jigger, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA


The restaurant carbonates their version in a keg overnight, but this home version ups the booze so you can just carbonate with sparkling water:


In a shaker combine:

1 ounce J.M. Blanc rum

1 1/2 ounce Appleton Estate rum

1/2 ounce Pierre Ferrand dry orange curaçao

1/2 ounce lime juice

1/2 ounce orgeat

2 dashes Hawaii Bitters Company Tahitian Lime bitters


Shake with ice and strain into a short pint glass or 14-ounce tulip glass filled with crushed ice. Top with soda water (lime flavored San Pellegrino works well, too), and finish by floating 1 ounce Cruzan Black Strap rum on top. Garnish with a lime wedge and brandied cherry.
