Created by Death to Sour Mix: I’m letting you know that this drink is a pain in the ass to make. I shouldn’t say that when the whole point of my site is to provide cocktail recipes that anyone can make but it’s a delicious labor of love for what it’s worth. For that I’d advise that if anyone reading this actually decides to make it, make a lot of it. You’ll find that its remarkably easy to drink and if you enjoy Thai food (I do and I find that remarkably easy to eat. All of it) then this is a drink that’ll have a lot of those familiar flavors and aromas.

Ingredients:

Serve in a Collins Glass

1 3/4 oz Sailor Jerry spiced rum
1/4 oz St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
2 dashes Angostura bitters
3/4 oz palm sugar / lemongrass simple
3/4 oz tamarind juice
1 wedge of lime (bout an 1/8 of a lime in size)

Garnish: Lemongrass, lime wheel and a kaffir lime leaf

Required Tools

How to Make

Shake all of the above and strain into a Collins glass with some fresh ice.
Top up with ginger beer (Fever Tree here).
Garnish with a stick of lemongrass, a lime wheel and a kaffir lime leaf.

About

This drink is a take on the ‘Dark & Stormy’ which is pretty much a rum based Moscow Mule. So to make it more interesting, I added a lot of South East Asian flavors to make it more unique.

Instead of using regular simple, take 1 part palm sugar (natural sugars from coconut trees) to equal part water; Add to that a couple 4″ pieces of fresh lemongrass  (pro tip: beat them up a bit with a muddler to loosen  up the fibers and release its flavors). Boil. simmer. cool. strain. bottle. You know the drill.
