Have you had a Mai Tai? I mean a REAL Mai Tai? Was it super sweet, yellow, and fruity? Then it was not a Mai Tai. 

Come hear the story of the Tiki era and its most well known cocktail, and sample variations on the drink. You'll learn how this Tiki thing began, as well as the history of the Mai Tai's contentious creation and the rivalry over its invention between Trader Vic and Don the Beachcomber.

The experts with Knoxville Cocktails will give advice on making the drink and mixology in general.
