When Victor Jules Bergeron borrowed $500 to set up a small bar and restaurant across from his parent’s grocery store in the 1930s, he just wanted to share his creativity and flare with the local citizens of the Golden Gate District in Oakland. That original Hinky Dink’s became the classic Trader Vic’s we know it as today, and along the way Bergeron invented a classic tiki cocktail for the ages: the Mai Tai.
BG Reynolds Mai Tai Mixer pays homage to Bergeron’s founding efforts by combining fresh lime, orange juices, and a sweet bite of almond from their Original Orgeat syrup. Mix 4 oz of Mai Tai mix with 2 oz of your favourite gold rum, and serve over ice.
Available in 375mL bottle.
Not feeling the rum? No worries. Try this mixer over a few ice cubes and soda water at your next party. Regardless of your intentions, the Mai Tai looks good in the glass, tastes better on the tongue, and brings to mind those distant shores and steel drums. We may not be able to just hop on a plane tomorrow, but this Mai Tai mixer can take us there with a simple taste.
