You watched the video more carefully than i did..i didn`t notice!...Bacardi white rum with Appleton in a Mai Tai that is sacrilege! He can use whatever rums he wants but then it cannot be called an original Mai Tai..
Have you noticed that Gosling`s Black Seal also is used on top? the original Vics recipe uses no floater.
But its a commercial video..

"Chances are good that if you've ever had a Mai Tai, you haven't had it the way Victor "Trader Vic" Bergeron intended it" - certainly!
