How to Make the Mauresque Mai Tai

Our cocktail of the week is one of the many that Johnny made for me. It’s called the Mauresque Mai Tai  – the Savoie twist on the Mai Tai or you could say a tiki twist on the local Mauresque cocktail, originally made with Absinthe and Orgeat.

Hear Johnny explaining the Mauresque Mai Tai on Lush Life Podcast!
