If you’re celebrating National Mai Tai Day on June 30, National Piña Colada Day on July 10, or both ~ there’s no better way to do so than with cocktails from Mr and Mrs T that are a step up from the original ~ it’s like a vacation in a glass!
When thinking of a Mai Tai or Piña Colada, you can only assume they must have been invented by a very thirsty person after a hot day on the sands of their favorite beach. After all, both concoctions are about as tropical as you can get when it comes to a drink.
