Hey Newcastle Bartender Legends,
In all honesty, would any of us turn down a Zombie or a Hurricane? How about a Jungle Bird or a Mai Tai? I didn’t think so…
Born in the 1930s, Tiki has been one of the longest standing and most misunderstood culinary movements and it is today seeing a resurgence around the globe!
To dig a bit deeper in what Tiki really is and to better understand the role of Jamaican Rum in Tiki drinks, CAMPARI ACADEMY is presenting MAI TAI (R)EVOLUTION; your one-way ticket into the legends, mysteries and deliciousness of the most emblematic of Tiki cocktails, the Mai Tai.
If you’re curious about the secret mixes, how Tiki championed fresh ingredients, and how, starting from high end restaurants, this movement brought rums from all around the world together to make people have a great time, then let’s go on this journey together!
We’ll talk about the Mai Tai, its creator(s), evolution and the role that Jamaican rum played into this, with the help of Appleton Estate, the most enjoyed Jamaican Rum in the world!
As always, we hope our program sparks your curiosity for this wonderful world and inspires you to start your new adventure behind and beyond the bar!
