Author Notes

This Mai Tai riff swaps out orange liqueur for yellow Chartreuse as a nod to Trader Vic’s french heritage. In addition, absinthe and rhum from the French Antilles join orgeat (almond syrup) for a winterized spin on the tiki classic. This is a great opportunity to use overproof rum—Smith & Cross is a personal favorite that is not too hard to find and is a workhorse on any bar cart. —Weekly Tiki
