History
So.... for a long time I've thought of Tiki drinks as a repository for every garishly colored, sickly flavored syrup and liqueur known to man. But I picked up a copy of "Beachbum Berry Remixed", and while reading about the Mai Tai, decided to make a minimalist version of the drink. Like all Mai Tais, feel free to combine white rums, but the La Favorite is the aroma and FdC white is the dry edge.

Wonderful nose, really

Wonderful nose, really highlighted the rum and lime elements, just a hint of sweet.  I always use a lighter touch with the orgeat.  Might sub out one of the rums for Arrack Batavia cause I happen to have it.  5 star.
