Mai Tai

The Mai Tai was reportedly created by Victor Bergeron, creator of the Trader Vic's restaurant chain, in 1944. It's name derives from the Tahitian phrase "Maita'i roa ae!" which means "Very good!." The Mai Tai has became synonymous with tiki culture after many tiki themed bars and restaurants in the 1950s and 1960s began serving them.
