Celebrate National Mai Tai Day at Smuggler’s Cove!

Quench your thirst with this historic cocktail with $2.00 off Mai Tais all night!

Within the pantheon of exotic cocktails, this local legend stands above the rest as the most iconic of the era.  Our version uses historically accurate Denizen Merchant’s Reserve rum, fresh lime, and a proprietary house-made Mai Tai “mix” of authentic ingredients: house-made orgeat, curaçao, and a specially formulated blend of sugars designed just for this drink.

More about the rum:

Martin Cate consulted with the good people at Denizen Rum to help them create Merchant’s Reserve, a rum that was faithful to Trader Vic’s Second Adjusted Formula, the formula Vic used to create his Mai Tai rum when both Wray and Nephew 15 year and Wray and Nephew 17 year supplies ran out.  It’s a blend of 8-year-old Jamaican pot-still rum and molasses-based rhum grand arôme from Martinique.
