Lono Hollywood Mai Tai

A complex and sophisticated Mai Tai cocktail you can order at Lono in Hollywood or learn how to make at home.

The Lono Hollywood Mai Tai is a highly complex and bold Mai Tai recipe employing a sophisticated blend of several Jamaican & Guyanese Rums. The addition of macadamia pays tribute to the nutty flavor of Trader Vic’s original, while a non-standard whisper of vanilla feels right at home in this Polynesian dream. Whereas, many modern Mai Tais taste nothing like a true Mai Tai, this interesting variant tastes very similar to the original, but with the flavors enhanced. A must try. Beware … that 151 packs a punch!
