Comments on Mai Tai #3 Post a Comment
Back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, 1961 or so, I received conflicting information: Tale No. 1 A waiter at the "Trader Vic's" on San Pableo Ave. in Oakland told us that Vic Bergeron invented the Mai Tai in his first joint, "Hinky Dinks". Tale No. 2 The barman at the old Halekulani on Waikiki said "Nonsense! The Mai Tai was invented right here at the Halekulani bar." The bad news is that forty years have passed and I still don't know the answer. The good news is that forty years of research has not been all bad. If you're at Hinky Dinks sucessor, the Trader Vic's in Emeryville, make sure to order the "Old Way" Mai Tai. GT

Want to make authentic Mai Tai's this summer. Where can I find Rock Candy syrup and Orgeat Syrup?
