Mai Tai at Trader Vic's 

Some say that Victor Jules Bergeron Jr., also known as Trader Vic, invented the Mai Tai. (There's some disagreement about this, but isn't there always when cocktails are involved?) He passed away decades ago, but the barkeeps at this hotel chain still make a faithfully bracing version of his enduring concoction of two rums, Cointreau, lime juice, and orgeat syrup. A big garnish of mint is what you'll notice first, but the rum is what will stay with you. $7.
