This was posted on Master of the Flying Guillotine, by the Mike Kuciak creator of the Mike Tai … a cocktail I’ve included in Trouble Brewing. Go easy on it.
My friend Jane Tara was kind enough to include the infamous Mike Tai in her fantasy-romance novel TROUBLE BREWING. Here is the sweet nectar of immortality:
“Calypso pulled out a bottle of Captain Morgan’s Coconut Rum and a couple of tall glasses, which she filled with ice. She poured an even mix of rum, orange juice and pineapple juice into each glass. “This is like a kick in the head.”
Taran gave Calypso a quick pat on the backside. “I need one to wake me up. All I want to do is sleep after that little session.” Taran took a swig of his drink. “Love it. What is it?”
“Called a Mike Tai. A friend of mine came up with it. It’s his version of the Mai Tai.”
Taran took another mouthful.
“Go easy there, big boy. It tastes harmless, but it can sneak up on you.”
Wiser words never spoken, Calypso. You’ll never see the Mike Tai coming. I speak from experience.
