Mai Tai translates from Tahitian to mean "Out of this World" and it is a fitting description for this very fun rum c0cktail. The story goes that the Mai Tai came to light in 1944 in Oakland's Trader Vic's. There, Victor Bergeron, one of the founders of the tiki scene, put together this great drink that deserves to feature the best rums you can get your hands on.
