Two Trader Vic originals in one? Yes and it comes together in the most Vic’s way possible. The Royal Bermuda Yacht Club is Vic’s tiki-fied version of the Daiquiri and there is his legendary MaiTai. It started out as a simple sub when I ran out of Orgeat mid way through making drinks at home. Falernum to the rescue! It’s more like a spiced Orgeat and I began to build the drink from there. Went for a split sweet liqueur with Falernum/dry curaçao and also a rum base split. Of-course added S&C for a bit of funk which seems to be a must in all my rum drinks lately. Finally the blood orange juice added the touch of bitter tartness to the drink and made it even more refreshing. And of-course it resembled a lot like a mash up of the two legendary drinks. No wonder it tasted amazing and did not mind having this on a cold winter night.
