Royal Hawaiian Mai Tai

The Royal Hawaiian Mai Tai is the modern version of the traditional Mai Tai that was developed by Trader Vic. After the success of the traditional Mai Tai, Trader Vic traveled to the Hawaiian Islands to create the drinks at the Royal Hawaiian and the Surfrider hotels. To keep up with the demand and also make a more tourist-friendly cocktail he had to switch the original ingredients of the Mai Tai with a blend of juices. This adaptation became wildly popular and overshadowed the traditional Mai Tai recipe. So nowadays, many bars will serve the recipe of the Royal Hawaiian Mai as a Mai Tai, which is why a lot of people don't know the difference between the two.
