Mai Tais

While I'm drinking one, I thought I'd share my own very good (I never said I was humble) Mai Tai recipe, so here goes:

2 shots sweet and sour mix
1 shot gold rum
1 shot pineapple rum (I prefer Malibu)
1 shot orange liqueur, like Gran Gala
1 shot amaretto
Dark rum for floating

Fill a large shaker about 3/4 of the way with crushed or cracked ice. Add all ingredients except the dark rum. Shake really well until very cold. Fill 2 lowball glasses about 1/2 way with crushed ice. Pour the shaken drinks evenly between the 2 glasses, leaving about 1/2 to the rim. Float dark run on top of the each glass. Garnish if that's your thing with an orange slice and stick of fresh pineapple. Pretend you are in Hawai'i.
