Our new site page discusses the Mai Tai recipe from the Havana Trader Vic’s, circa 1958.
In addition to being an interesting historical artifact about a little known (and shortly lived) Trader Vic’s location, it is one of the earliest documented references for the use of a Rhum Agricole in a Mai Tai.

Once a year excuse for draw from this hard-to-obtain bottle of Cuban rum. Light aged rums like this Havana Club 3 make for a much more satisfying Daiquiri. Light and refreshing.
Last night’s Zoom with the Oakhana turned into Havana Club night. Somehow nearly every one of the Bay Area locals had a bottle of the contraband Havana Club rum on hand.
That’s how you know we’re hardcore rum nerds.
So much fun seeing all the Oakland Ohana. Someday soon, in person.
