Why We Enjoy A Mai-Tai?

A Mai-Tai from the moment it’s name is heard evokes images of the tropics, with a taste to match. It is meant to capture the flavor of the Tahitian islands.

Excellence Is The Name of Mai-Tai

The modern Mai-Tai is based on the recipe of Victor J. Bergeron from his California restaurant Trader Vic’s, though as with most recipes, there is dispute as to who actually created it. Mai-Tai is actually taken from the Tahitian word maita’i, meaning good or excellent.

As far back as 1806, the first published use of the word “cocktail” was used to describe the Old Fashioned in The Balance and Columbian Repository. It was officially mentioned as an Old Fashioned in 1880, and brought back to the Old World. A popular variant there includes substituting in absinthe in place of the whiskey.

The margarita has been known to exist south of the border in Mexico and the southern US as a remix of the Daisy (which used brandy in place of tequila).  Margarita actually means “daisy” in Spanish.  While many people have attempted to claim inventing the drink, it was known to exist as early as 1935, and was first published in 1953 by Esquire magazine.
