I made a giant batch of these for Keith's birthday party BBQ last weekend, and it would be an understatement to say people enjoyed them! I made the drink the afternoon before the part to give it plenty of time to chill. We had a little drink station going with raspberry lemonade in the drink dispenser (my favorite serving piece for parties!), paper straws, drink umbrellas, garnishes (not seen: cherries, and orange + pineapple slices), and the pitcher of Mai Tais.
The Perfect Mai Tai
Makes one serving
1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger spiced rum
1/2 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger coconut-flavored rum
1 teaspoon grenadine syrup
3 fluid ounces pineapple juice
2 fluid ounces orange juice
garnishes: pineapple, cherry, orange
Combine all ingredients and shake in a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour over ice in a glass. OR make a huge batch, stir, let it cool in the refrigerator over night and then serve over ice. It is great either way!

Fun was had by all! And I think I'm done entertaining for a month or two. I feel like we've had parties / dinners non-stop and I'm tried!
Happy Thursday Friends!
