It's Plantation Rum Week, and we make probably one of the most popular and well-known tropical rum cocktails, a Mai Tai. There are countless variations and rum options available, and today we chose to use 2 Plantation Rum offerings: their Isle of Fiji and Xaymaca rums. Watch to find out if splitting the liquor base with these two makes this tiki drink great, or if it falls short.


  • 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • .25 oz Orgeat Syrup
  • .25 oz Demerara Syrup
  • .75 oz Dry Curacao
  • 1 oz Isle of Fiji Planation Rum
  • 1 oz Xaymaca Plantation Rum


  1. Combine all ingredients into a shaking tin
