Mai Tai in a Pitcher
Get a Nice Glass Pitcher,  a measuring cup, and friends

1 cup Spiced Rum
1 cup light Rum
1 cup Orange cointreau
2 cups pineapple orange juice I like pineapple orange by Simply Orange
1/4 cup Amaretto Di Saronno
1/4 to 1/2 cup lime juice
1/4 cup simple syrup

Mix all the ingredients together  in the pitcher, chill

Serve in an Old Fashioned Glass over ice with a splash of dark rum on top
pour the dark rum over an icecube to help keep it floating to the top

Garnish with pineapple slice and a maraschino cherry
