Mohit once had a work assignment in Malaysia for a year. I accompanied him on his work trip, and we visited Thailand many times for vacations. We picked up the taste of Mai Tai’s from there.

I couldn’t replicate this cocktail for the longest time because I couldn’t find Orgeat syrup, an essential ingredient in a Mai Tai cocktail. But recently, I was checking Amazon and came across it. I immediately ordered a bottle, and since mangoes were in season, I made this mango-flavored variation.

I have already made it a few times because it is so so good. You guys must try it too!

About Mango Mai Tai

Mango Flavored Mai Tai is a simple and refreshing cocktail you must try on a hot summer day.

It is a take on a classic tropical mai tai cocktail prepared with dark rum, orange liqueur, orgeat syrup, pineapple juice, and mango puree.

Serve this drink for your next house party or sip by the pool on a hot summer day.

Ingredients

Dark Rum – Use any dark rum you prefer. Spiced rum gives the cocktail a spicy hint.

Mango Puree – I prefer homemade mango puree made with Alphonso mangoes, which are sweet and juicy. If you do not have fresh mangoes, you can also use frozen mangoes or mango puree.

Grand Marnier is an orange-flavored liquor. You can use other orange-flavored liquors, like Cointreau or Triple Sec, instead.

Orgeat Syrup -Orgeat syrup is a sweet syrup made from almonds, sugar, and sometimes rose water or orange flower water. It is a key ingredient in the Mai Tai recipe and can be found at many specialty food stores, liquor stores, or online.

You will also need freshly squeezed lime juice, pineapple juice (fresh or canned), and lots of ice.

Garnish the drink with fresh edible flowers and fresh mint leaves.
