The original Mai Tai was created by “Trader Vic” Bergeron in 1944 and introduced to Hawaii in 1953, where it was first served at The Royal Hawaiian hotel. So those craving the classic cocktail should try it at the legendary Mai Tai Bar in the iconic “Pink Palace” of Waikiki, as The Royal Hawaiian is also known. The bar sits just steps from Waikiki Beach, overlooking the ocean in a postcard-perfect setting that’s lured celebrities and heads of state throughout the years. The secret to this bar’s success with the Mai Tai? Fresh, local juices to give it true island flavor.
