Monkeypod Mai Tai Recipe


When we were in Hawaii one of  our favorite meals was at Monkeypod Kitchen where we discovered a deliciously dangerous drink that would have you falling over after a couple.
The Mai Tai is synonymous with Tiki Culture and is a refreshing mix of rum and juices. There are a ton of different recipes but the egg white foam topper from Monkeypod put this drink on another level. 
I couldn't wait to get home to order a whipped cream gun to make this drink. I wasn't disappointed.
My bar savvy friend had to show me how to use a spoon to keep the layers from mixing mixing.

Ingredients:
  • 1 ounce light rum
  • 1 ounce dark rum
  • 1/2 ounce pineapple syrup (pineapple juice and sugar reduced)
  • 1/2 ounce orange curacao
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  • foam (see below)
Directions:
  1. Add lime, syrup, orange curacao and light rum to a mixing glass with ice. 
  2.  Shake and strain over ice into a highball glass. 
  3.  Float dark rum on top by pouring over a spoon to limit the splash. 
  4. Top with foam from whipped cream gun.

Foam

Ingredients:
  • 2 parts passion fruit puree/juice
  • 1 parts simple syrup
  • 2 parts egg whites
  • 1 part honey
  • 4 parts cold water
Directions:
  1. Add everything to a whipped cream gun.
