The classic Tiki drink, a Mai Tai is the perfect way to transport yourself to a far-flung South Pacific beach complete with swaying palm trees, aquamarine waters and ukulele music. This refreshing tropical cocktail pairs best with warm weather and wanderlust.

1 ounce rum
½ ounce orange curaçao
½ ounce amaretto
2 ounces pineapple juice
2 ounces Mai Tai mix

Mix all ingredients together, except for the dark rum, and shake over ice. Split the mixture between two glasses, pouring over fresh crushed ice and float the dark rum on top. Serve with a lime wedge and a sprig of mint – and imagine yourself in sun-drenched Tahiti. Manuia!
