Cinnamon Mai Tai

Cinnamon Mai Tai Recipe abeautifulmess.comSome days are just Mai Tai days. That's a fact. Mai Tais are my sushi drink, but recently I thought it would be fun to try to create my own recipe at home without a store-bought mix, of course. What's funny is that there are approximately 1 million different ways to make a Mai Tai. I guess that's probably true with most recipes. I had a lot of fun playing around with this recipe this past week until I found my ideal version. If you know another trick or secret ingredient, I'm all ears. :)Cinnamon Mai Tai Recipe abeautifulmess.com Cinnamon Mai Tai Recipe abeautifulmess.com Cinnamon Mai Tai, serves one

Light Rum
Dark Rum
Grenadine syrup
Pineapple juice
Half and half
Sour mix
Cinnamon 
Lime 

Cocktail recipe: In a shaker combine 1.5 ounces light rum, 1.5 ounces dark rum, 1/2 a tablespoon grenadine syrup, 1 cup pineapple juice, a splash of half and half (literally just a tiny splash—this is what gives it the pretty creamy color, and it will not affect the flavor at all), a splash of sour mix (recipe below), the juice of half a lime and a dash of cinnamon. Add ice and shake. Serve with a little ice and garnish with a lime slice and a dash of cinnamon on the top. Enjoy! 

Sour Mix Recipe: To make homemade sour mix just combine equal parts lemon juice, water and sugar on the stove top and simmer until the sugar has completely dissolved. I think this sour mix is a million times tastier than the store bought kind, and it's a little more tart as well. You can use the rest to make homemade Whiskey Sours. ;)Cinnamon Mai Tai Recipe abeautifulmess.com   Cinnamon Mai Tai Recipe abeautifulmess.com   Cinnamon Mai Tai Recipe abeautifulmess.com   I hope you enjoy it! I think it's the perfect recipe for a bummer day, a little celebration and everything in between I suppose. Hope you had a killer weekend. xo. Elsie
