Non-alcoholic Mai Tai cocktail / mocktail

Non-Alcoholic Mai Tai

Few drinks can conjure a tropical beach in paradise like the Mai Tai. Created by Tiki godfather Trader Vic in Oakland in the 1940s, we've adapted his recipe for a non-alcoholic version that truly hits the vacation sweet spot.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 oz (1/4 cup) Ritual Zero Proof Rum Alternative
  • 1 oz (2 tbs) fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 oz (1 tbs + 1.5 tsp) Liber & Co. Almond Orgeat Syrup
  • 3-4 dashes Bitter Housewife Orange Bitters
INSTRUCTIONS:

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake 5-10 seconds to chill. Pour unstrained (that means with all the ice in the shaker) into a rocks glass. Garnish with a spent lime shell that you used for juicing and a mint sprig. The garnish is meant to evoke a tropical island on the horizon, and is also an olfactory treat for your nose.

Note: Bitter Housewife Orange Bitters DO contain alcohol. However, because they are used in such a small quantity, this drink is still considered non-alcoholic. You can also substitute other kinds of orange bitters.

LOW-ALCOHOL VARIATION:

One of the signature ingredients in a traditional Mai Tai is curacao, an orange-flavored liqueur. For our non-alcoholic version, we've added orange flavor via orange bitters. However, you can also make a low-alcohol variation using curacao (I recommend Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao). In this case, simply omit the orange bitters, reduce the Orgeat to 1/2 oz (1 tbs) and add 1/2 oz (1 tbs) curacao.
