Mai Tai Bar Debuts New Classic Cocktail Menu

May 12, 2016

The Mai Tai Bar at The Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort, debuted a new beverage program that shares a little history of how the Matson Navigation company commissioned Trader Vic in 1953 to create a signature cocktail for the Waikiki hotel.

They now feature seven new and different Mai Tai’s on their menu.

Trader Vic’s “Royal Mai Tai” remaining the #1 selling cocktail to this day.

A few of the drinks on the new Classic Cocktail Menu are unique to The Royal Hawaiian, too!

  • Royal Mai Tai – Trader Vics original recipe created for the Royal Hawaiian hotel in 1953
  • Choco-tai – Made with cacao and kona coffee and a chocolate foam
  • Ali’I Mai tai – Made with 21-year aged rum, topped with foam and sprayed with the hotel’s logo

The Royal Hawaiian also added a fun “Old vs. New” section featuring their “Classic Cocktails with a modern twist.”

They’re all made utilizing fresh, house-made syrups and flavored foams made from locally-sourced produce.

Refreshing cocktails, light gourmet appetizers and the Mai Tai Bar’s iconic beachfront all contribute to leaving you with an exquisite and indelible imprint of our idyllic island lifestyle.

Cheers!
