Ultimate Mai Tai

Falernum is an ingredient in some classic Mai tais and tikki drinks. I don't have any so found a recipe for it on the web. Thought I'd skip the steeping part. Basically just added everything that is in Falernum straight into my Maitai

My Maitai

1.5 oz Cruzan dark rum
1/2 oz Wright and Nephew demerara rum
1/4 oz luxardo amaretto
1/2 oz almond syrup
Juice and zest of 1/2 a large lime (or a whole small one)
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp each of fresh ground cinnamon, allspice, and clove

Shake like the dickens and serve on the rocks

Top with a Fabbri cherry, umbrella, and an orchid if you have one.

I promise, this Mai tai rocks!
