I have an obsession with Thai food; the flavors and the balance of sweet, sour, spicy and salty.  My favorite Thai ingredients are lemongrass, Thai chilies, Thai basil, lime, fish sauce, coconut milk and lime leaves.

This Thai inspired cocktail came about after I came home with the basil plants I mentioned in my last post, Strawberry Basil Pops.  (I have an obsession with basil too, haha)

What are you obsessed with, food wise?

Anyway, once I had my Thai basil and mint plants home, I had the idea to try to create a cocktail based on them.  I had some lime leaves and red Thai chilies in the freezer (as always) and some simple syrup. (The red chili was just a garnish, for color)  I brought out the Tito’s vodka (not sponsored, just love it) and started muddling and pouring.  The end result was a cocktail we both loved and have had a few times since. 😉

If you don’t have simple syrup, check out my blog post for that, it’s as easy as combining and heating sugar and water.

What’s your favorite cocktail?
