10 Must-Try Mai Tais in Hawaii

June 30, 2017

It’s Mai Tai o’clock across the nation and what better day OR way to celebrate National Mai Tai Day than Aloha Friday in Hawaii! With 12 incredible resorts across the Aloha State, we certainly have our fair share of cheers-worthy Mai Tais being served up by the dozens everyday.

Mai Tai, which comes from the Tahitian word “Maita’i” meaning good, has undoubtedly earned its status as THE tropical vacation cocktail of choice. And while Trader Vic and Don the Beachcomber both stake claims to the iconic cocktail, we must admit that the talented mixologists at the Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Hawaii have upped the ante when it comes to mixing up a matai’i Mai Tai!

Here are our top 10 must-try Mai Tais in Hawaii:
