Most likely created in 1944 by Victor Jules Bergeron, known as Trader’s Vic – one of the fathers of the tiki cocktail culture, inspired by Polynesian culture. Mai Tai is one of the most popular cocktails of that era. The name most likely comes from the Tahitian language, which translates into Polish as “exquisite”.
