Ah, the mai tai: the classic tropical alcoholic beverage that instantly comes to mind when someone mentions drinking on the beach in Hawaii. The classic Hawaiian mai tai is most often made with light and dark rum, orange curacao, orgeat syrup, and fresh lime juice mixed and served over ice with a pineapple wedge and maraschino cherry. While there are countless restaurants and bars with mai tais on the menu, there is only one Mai Tai Mile. No need for a designated driver (except to take you home afterward, but we suggest staying at one of Waikiki’s amazing hotels for the night): measuring in at just 1.1 miles, this epic drinking tour will allow you to enjoy seven of Hawaii’s best mai tais.
