Thirsty Thursday - Thank you Drinks Tube

It's heating up here in Oz and with our #waterchallenge this month, I am slurping on some major liquid action. So today I thought I would mix it up a little and share some inspo drinks to quench your thirst from some of Jamie's Drinks Tube gurus's.... when you're not hydrating on water that is! Enjoy!

I would have to say a Mai Tai (which is Tahitian for "good") would be one of my fave tropical drinks - this South Pacific beverage is pure sunshine in a glass! It takes me back to our pre wedding drinks night in Hawaii May 21, 2006.

Jamie Oliver Drinks Tube Mai Tai


  • A shaker
  • A strainer
  • Short glass


  • 1 ½ parts Bacardi Superior rum
  • ½ part Cointreau liqueur
  • ¼ part lime juice
  • 1 ½ parts pineapple juice
  • 1 ½ parts orange juice
  • 1 dash grenadine
  • 1 part Bacardi Black rum
  • Cubed ice
  • To garnish: Lime wedge & mint

How to mix

  1. Put lots of ice and all of the ingredients into a shaker and shake for about 20 seconds to chill the liquid really well
  2. Strain the mix over ice (you could fill your glass with ice and pour the mix straight in, or – to look extra flash – strain it over ice separately and then add to a glass containing fresh ice). If you still have the limes you squeezed earlier, use a wedge as a garnish with some mint

What's your favourite drink? Xx Dani
