One sip of this bright, beachy cocktail and you’ll be whisked away to the shores of the Caribbean. Part of Cafe Brazil‘s thoughtfully designed drink menu, Sol y Sombra (“Sun and Shade”), the twist-on-a-classic Trader Vic’s Mai Tai is well-balanced, slightly sweet and full of flavor. It’s best reserved for an exceptionally sunny day requiring big hats and no shoes, so make a big batch and plant yourself next to some sort of body of water to really feel the island effect.
