Mai Tai

Trader Vic´s rival, Don Beachcomber, claimed to have created it in 1933 at his then-new bar named himself in Hollywood. Beachcombers' Mai Tai is more complex than that of Vic´s and tastes quite different and is called Mai Tai Zwizzler.

"Maita`i" is the Tahitian word for "good"; but the drink is spelled as tho words, sometimes hyphenated or capitalized.

The Trader Vic story of its invention is that the Trader (Victor J. Bergeron) created it one afternoon for some friends who were visiting from Tahiti. One of those friends, Carrie Guild, tasted it and cried out: "Maia`i roa ae!" (literal very good, figuratively "Out of this world! The Best!) - hence the name Mai Tai.
