Skinny Mai Tai – Friday Afternoon Happy Hour

Skinny Mai Tai Cover

We are back again for the Friday Afternoon Happy hour! I am currently in China, but I put together one of my favorite drinks last week to share with you all! If you want to follow along with us while we are in China, check us out on Instagram!

If you google Mai Tai you will find hundreds of recipes. This is my little version that I have found captures the flavor of a classic Mai Tai without all some of the extra sweetness (read sugar and calories!!).  Here is what you will need for this recipe:

2 oz White rum
1 oz dark rum
1 oz triple sec or orange cuacao
1/2 cup club soda
1/4 cup of orange juice
splash of grenadine syrup
splash of Key west lime juice

for garnish:
Maraschino Cherry
Sprig of mint or slice of lime

Add rums and triple sec (or orange cacao) a glass of ice.

Note: I am using a 12 oz glass in the pictures. 

Fill half of the remaining space in the glass with club soda, it will be about 1/4 – 1/2 cup (the more you add, the fewer calories in the drink… but less flavor)

Almost top the glass with orange juice, but leave a little extra space.

Slowly add a splash of grenadine then garnish with a cherry.
