Created by Victor Bergeron a.k.a 'Trader Vic' at his tiki restaurant in Oakland California, 1944. First served to his Polynesian friends, they tried the drink and proclaimed "Mai Tai, Roe Ae" meaning 'out of this world, the best'.
Some arguments surrounding the origin of the drink popped up during the mid 50's as Vic's rival and suggested mentor, 'Don the Beachcomber' (Ernest Beaumont Gantt) who also owned a tiki restaurant in Los Angeles proclaimed that he in fact created the drink. Most believe, including myself, that Vic is the true creator.
