This Mai Ta-IPA recipe is a delightful twist on the classic Polynesian-style cocktail that sees the infusion of a hoppy India Pale Ale brew. The unique combination of hops and citrus is a flavorful delight for beer and spirits fans alike.

In order to create this complex, frothy beer cocktail, one should acquire an aged rum, a light rum, fresh lime juice, orgeat, orange Curacao and of course, your favorite IPA. The drink is served in a Collins glass and requires only a shaker and strainer, so even the casual bartender should have the required tools on hand.

The light and refreshing Mai Ta-IPA is a fun convergence of the craft cocktail movement and the microbrewery revolution.
