There’s no other drink that more signifies Hawaii than the Mai Tai. It’s a mixture of light rum, topped with a combination fruit juice and Triple Sec and finished with dark rum ~ always sporting a pineapple wedge.
Our time to sip a Mai Tai is as the intense tropical daytime sun slowly sets, giving way to the coolness of the evening's stars and moon. It is a magical time of day.
We’ve been enjoying these Mai Tai moments while on the island of O’ahu. The first photos were taken at the Outrigger Canoe Club and the third at Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club.
It is once again Travel Photo Thursday so visit the many other wonderful places highlighted today on Budget Travelers Sandbox.
Beautiful! Can you believe I've never had a Mai Tai? Well, I've also never been to Hawaii, but I think the first problem is an easier fix :)ReplyDelete
The best Mai Tai I every had was made with snow, scooped up during the summer from the lower slopes of the Three Sisters in Central Oregon. It was the perfect way to end a day of hiking through the wilderness.ReplyDelete
I also like iced tea on the beach with a chunk of pineapple; maybe pineapple is the key!ReplyDelete
Ahhh, the perfect way to end to any day.ReplyDelete
I don't usually have mixed drinks -- I'm a wine person. But when I'm in Hawaii, Mai Tais are a must. I can just imagine watching that sunset with one in hand.ReplyDelete
Very beautiful :)ReplyDelete
Lovely sunset photo. For some reason, I always don't get it right. sigh. (Dropping by from the Budget Travelers Sandbox Travel Photo Thursday)ReplyDelete
Hi Jackie and Joel. It looks delightful, and I'm sure it must taste the same!ReplyDelete
