Didn’t think of Disney as having a signature cocktail? Then you haven’t been to Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa on the island of O’ahu.
This fun filled family resort has it all, water slides, lazy river, sandy beaches and killer Mai Tai’s.
On my visit to see their recent expansions (fab new infinity pools) they treated us all to their signature Mai Tai. As I am now a cocktail blogger, and take my duties seriously, I had one every day of my stay to ensure product consistency. Disney, as expected, lived up to the challenge.
Odwalla Fresh Lime Juice 0.5 oz
Pineapple 2 oz
Monin Orgeat Syrup (almond) 2 pumps
(can sub .5 oz orgeat liqueur)
Old Lahaina Silver Rum 1 oz
BOLS Orange Curacao 0.5 oz
Whaler’s Dark Rum (float) 1 oz
Mix everything except the dark rum and give it a good shake…pour over ice. Float with dark rum and top with FOMZ passion fruit.
The lillikoi flavored FOMZ is what puts it over the top, it’s all whipped fruit and no dairy. I am besotted with this product. It doesn’t seem to be available to the public, yet. I am hounding them and you should too. Until then I am going to cozy up to a bartender somewhere and get my fix. I’m not kidding, it’s that good people.
So what did my children do while I was busy doing Mai Tai quality control? Why take pictures of each other in my sunglasses of course.
Mix up a Mai Tai, put on your sunglasses and let’s all pretend it’s summer ok?
My children and I were the guests of Disney for this press trip, the children’s airfare and all but one of my Mai Tai’s were at my own expense. And worth every penny.
