Woe is the day when you're ready to mix a Mai Tai but have neither the energy or the ingredients. Mai Tai mix to the rescue! Trader Vic's, the originator of the drink, sells a pre-made mix online, but recently I've read lots of good things about Dave & Anna's Signature Blends Mai Tai Mix.
Dave was a bartender for Trader Vic's and eventually his own restaurant, Honolulu, in Alexandria, VA, and claims to have made over 200,000 Mai Tais in his lifetime. He and his wife ran the establishment for 25 years until the restaurant closed due to a DOT construction project.
Besides the mix, their recipe calls for 1 oz of light rum, 1 oz of golden rum, 1 oz of lemon juice and a squeeze of lime. Not necessarily close to the original formula, but definitely easier for the home bartender to produce.
