Favorite Ingredients Friday (Mai Tai)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Check out my upcoming themed schedule below:

Upcoming 2009 "Themed" Schedule
February 27- Homemade Pizza Edition
March 13- Side Dishes Edition
March 27- Mexican Food Edition
April 10- Easter Edition

In honor of my time here in Honolulu, Hawaii I thought I'd share the recipe for my favorite Hawaiian drink.  The picture below is the first one I had the night I arrived!  Yum!

Mai Tai

Ingredients
1 oz light rum
1/2 oz creme de almond
1/2 oz triple sec
sweet and sour mix
pineapple juice
1/2 oz dark rum

Directions
1. Pour light rum, creme de almond and triple sec, in order, into a collins glass.
2. Almost fill with equal parts of sweet and sour mix and pineapple juice.
3. Add dark rum, a large straw, and serve unstirred.
6. Add toppings of your choice.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.
