The Perfect Mai Tai

Posted on Thu, 2015/03/19 - 11:22am by Jeff Mull

There is something truly magical about a Mai Tai at Turtle Bay. Refreshing, with its colors mirroring that of the sunset, a Mai Tai at dusk at Turtle Bay’s Pool Bar is one of life’s simple pleasure. If you happen to be one of those unfortunate souls not living on the North Shore, we thought we’d do you a solid and hand over the recipe that’s been making patrons grin for more than three decades. Without further adieu, here’s the secret recipe for the perfect Mai Tai, courtesy of the Pool Bar. Enjoy!

The Perfect Turtle Bay Mai Tai
- Hana Bay gold Rum
- Orange Juice
- Pineapple Juice
- Dash of Lemon Line
- Dash of Orange Curaçao
- Dash of Almond Etract
- Pour over ice and float with Hana Bay Dark Rum

We recommend enjoying your mai tai with this view, from the pool bar overlooking the ocean.

our first visit to Oahu and Turtle bay - hubby had never had a mai tai and fell in love with these - truly awesomeness!! Just wish the ingredient portions were listed so that I could offer him a little memory of the fantastic time we had.

Same with us, We went to Oahu a Year ago Feb, and had our first real Mai Tai, boy were they awesome. I agree i wish the ingredient portions were listed here as well. Would bring back our Memory of our 45th Wedding Anniversary there.

Great Mai Tai at Turtle Bay. Copy editor may have had one too many...don't won't to create much ado about nothing, however, adieu is not ado. Pretty sure the author was looking for ado here rather than the French word for goodby. Without further ado, I say as revoir!

Love this drink. Turtle Bay has the best by far. I would like to know how much of each ingredient to use so I could try to make here at home.

We have been drinking these for 25 years---we come all the way from Makiki just for the awesome people who make these awesome cocktails. The Hana Bay Rum should be a constant staple.

Best Mai Tai's we've ever had in Hawaii. Been practicing on the amounts, but haven't actually gotten it perfect yet. Maybe the atmosphere is what is missing? I guess we'll have to look at the picture and remember.

My favorite bar ON THE PLANET...but you did not give me the measurements of each! I don't think anyone can make 'em like Eddie, but I would sure like to try while I am on the mainland. Please updates with measurements!
