MAI TAI...Is it Thais drink???

Mai Tai: Invented in 1944 by Victor "Trader Vic" Bergeron, when he mixed Jamaican rum, juice from a fresh lime, a few dashes of orange curaco syrup, some french orgeat, and rock candy syrup. As recounted by Trader Vic history, it was served to some friends from Tahiti, who promptly said "Mai Tai, Roa Ae!", which in Tahitian means "Out of this world, the best!".

This drink is also available in Thailand as well, try it !!

Hello World..Beverage Site...Cocktails Weblog !!!

Welcome to the comprehensive and accessible guide to the world of alcohol & non alcohol drinks and how to drink them.

In presenting this site to the public, I would like to express that it is nothing more than an effort of a Thais who, though neither experienced in the use of the English language nor an expert in beverage, wishes nevertheless to present a sort of beverage information for Thais by writing some topic in English so that it may reach a wider public.....Finally, we know how to drink them and please keep in mind. Do not drive while you are drunk !!!
