The Dream Cocktail is often consumed after dinner and combines 3 strong flavours; brandy, orange and aniseed.
The Mai Tai is a rum based cocktail and there are many different recipes to be found, the earliest dating back to 1933. There is controversy over its exact origin, but one thing that is not in doubt – it’s an elegant and delicious cocktail. Here is one version of the vintage Mai Tai cocktail.
If you don’t like aniseed, then this cocktail should be avoided! The aniseed from the absinthe is quite strong, but for those who are partial to this flavour, it should be a winner. It’s summery in colour, sweet and complex in taste with a real kick to it; definitely a ‘marmite’ cocktail.
