Facebook friend Allan Peter Davis declared today Mai-Tai Fri-day and posted an accompanying Mai-Tai recipe. We were in. Looking around the cabinet, we had all ingredients except the Cointreau, so we rushed over to the store and picked up a bottle.

Mai Tai Ingredients

We assembled the ingredients on the counter, snapped a picture and got to work. His recipe is below – love the instructions that you should shake vigorously while listening to Jimmy Buffet or reggae tunes! Gonna have to make a pitcher of them this weekend and share with some friends. Mahalo Allan!
