Sit back and savor the taste of the tropics with The New Wave Mai Tai. Learn about the rich history of rum, the principal ingredient in the mai tai. Delve into the origins of the mai tai and hear both sides of the eternal debate: Who created the quintessential Island libation - Don the Beachcomber or Trader Vic? In addition, this colorful book contains over 50 recipes for new twists on the old classic: try a Mai Tai-Jito, a Sassy Wahine or a Smooth Shredder. These creative cocktails go beyond what either Don the Beachcomber or Trader Vic could ever have imagined.
