These mai tai margaritas are a mashup of the two classic summer cocktails. With tequila, rum, pineapple, and lime, this is the beach drink you’ve been looking for!
1 ounce silver tequila
¾ ounce lime juice
½ ounce orange liquor
½ ounce agave nectar (I use Agave In The Raw)
2 drops almond extract (less than 1/8 tsp)
1–1/2 ounces pineapple juice
1 ounce spiced rum
Combine the tequila, lime juice, orange liquor, agave nectar, almond extract, and pineapple juice in a tall shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds and strain contents over a lowball or margarita glass (salted rim optional) filled with new (I use crushed or pellet) ice. Pour the spiced rum on top as a floater and serve with a lime wedge, fresh mint, or pineapple spear as garnish. Enjoy and drink responsibly!
