Pedestrian Mai Tai & Pedestrian Mai Tai in the Crowded Crosswalk (September 25, 2021)

This two different types of Mai Tais are both served with ice and garnished with a cookie.

The more juices we added to our Pedestrian Mai Tais, the more they tasted like that tropical classic. But I confess that I preferred the stripped-down original! Not as sweet, but somehow more satisfying to me, with the raspberry playing off of the spices in the rum.

I broke with our progression of adding juices, and went back to the good ol’ Pedestrian Mai Tai, which you see on the right. Mark’s drink is the Pedestrian Mai Tai in the Crowded Crosswalk, which we’ve also made before.

Although the easy nature of these drinks has suited our lifestyle on this road trip, I have another confession: I miss rims and garnishes!

I added gingerbread cookies here, because that’s what we had, and they were great! Mine fell in the cocktail and when I eventually fished it out, it had taken on some liquid and tasted extra good! The ginger spices in the cookie really complement the rum and raspberry juice.

Mark liked his too. 🙂
