Maple Mai Tai Posted on 8 Aug 14:04 , 0 comments

For those tropical and sultry days, Laura Sorkin has created a Maple Mai Tai recipe that will rock your world.  You'll never accept the classic bartender drink served at your local tavern again.

The recipe is very simple: just rum, mango juice, a hint of unsweetened cranberry or pomegranate juice and a splash of Makrut Lime-Leaf Infused maple syrup. It is definitely sweet but the Makrut Lime-Leaf gives it some tropical essence while the cranberry or pomegranate ensures it doesn’t taste like a melted popsicle. If you want to lighten it up a bit, add some seltzer. 


  • Maple Mai Tai
  • 2-ounce dark rum
  • ¾ cup mango juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Runamok Maple Makrut Lime-Leaf Infused Maple Syrup
  • 1-ounce pomegranate or unsweetened cranberry juice
  • Seltzer (optional)

Combine all ingredients and pour over ice.
