Tiki bar lovers, this is your day! The mai tai was originally created in Oakland, Calif., by Victor Bergeron, when he was serving two friends from Tahiti in 1944. He used Jamaican rum, fresh lime, orange curacao, a dash of rock candy sugar, and French orgeat syrup, then garnished it with lime and mint. Today, there are multiple takes on the recipe, but any way you shake it, it’s impossible not to feel like your taste buds are taking a trip to the tropics.
