Garret Richards' Hawaiian Mai Tai

Garret Richards' Hawaiian Mai Tai

I took this recipe from an Educated Barfly YouTube video, featuring Garret Richards.

The acid adjusted pineapple juice is created by adding both citric and malic acid to the pineapple juice so it has the same acid content as lime juice. What results is an amazing and interesting liquid that TASTES like pineapple but FEELS like lime. It's hard to explain.

Flash blended and open poured over spent lime wedge. Usually served with mint sprig, but I’m running late and don’t want to go outside


  • 2.25oz Rum (Smith and Cross)
  • 0.5oz Triple Sec
  • 1oz Acid Adjusted Pineapple Juice
  • 0.75oz Orgeot
  • 2 dashes saline solution
  • squeeze of lime wedge
