The Mother Lode of Mai Tai Mix

Tiki Chick reader and all-around-cool-dude Mark contacted me a week or so with an intriguing offer. His father—a longtime regular of Trader Vic’s—was moving out of his house and they had a small stockpile of cocktail mixes to unload. They happened to be right in my neighborhood so I headed over and hauled off more than a dozen bottles of mai tai mix, orgeat and rock candy syrup (oh my!).

He also very generously sent me on my way with this fogcutter mug. Over the years,Β  Trader Vic’s has produced several versions of this mug, and you can get a glimpse of their most recent ones here.

Thus far all the tiki mugs I’ve amassed have been modern specimens (remember now, I’m a newbie!), so it’s neat to have one that’s practically as old as I am. Thanks again, Mark! Now I just need to go out and get some good rum…
