Squeeze the lime into the shaker and then drop it in. Shake, then pour all of the contents into a Mai Tai glass.
Garnish with the pineapple.
Float the dark rum.
Slap the mint sprig and place on top.
Make sure the glass is large enough to hold all of the ingredients. Garnish before adding the dark rum; Nobody likes their drink overflowed. The lime is the key ingredient! Its not a Mai Tai without it.
