Tia Mia Cocktail Recipe

We are happy to present you the Tia Mia, a delightful smoky version of the Mai Tai.

The Mai Tai can be one of the most famous cocktails made with rum. This Cocktail,  which means “Out of This World” in Tahitian, was first created in the 1940s by Victor Jules Bergeron, better known as Trader Vic, in his tiki restaurant. 

The Tia Mia incorporates the essence of the Mai Tai while introducing some exciting new flavors to this special cocktail.
