Cocktail Recipe Feature: Moray’s Mai Tai

Even though winter brings shorter days and cooler weather, you can still daydream about your next beach getaway with our Moray’s Mai Tai recipe. Set the scene and be transported to a scenic tropical setting by sipping on this refreshing libation — no matter where you are.

One of the most popular drinks in tiki culture, the Mai Tai is a rum-based cocktail that was originally created in the 1940s. You'll see variations of this tropical drink on every tiki bar menu throughout the nation and beyond.

Since the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa is a Polynesian-inspired destination that debuted in the 1950s, it only makes sense that the team has created its own version known as the Moray's Mai Tai. It's a fruity balance of sweet and sour, and it definitely puts you in a vacation state of mind.

Perfect for a happy hour at home, shake up your own for your friends and family members. And when you visit San Diego, we look forward to serving you our Moray's Mai Tai alongside palm trees, tiki torches, and stunning views of Mission Bay. Cheers!
