One Night In Bangkok

one night in bangkok 2

One Night in Bangkok is all about Thai cuisine and the ultimate combination of caramelized hot+sweet flavor. Sugar tames the hot and spicy chilies yielding an unmatched flavor combination. Aged tequila and house-made Thai chili syrup with lime and ginger create a cocktail that you can’t put down.

I created this based on a hazy, hilarious recollection by a former navy seal about his “one night in Bangkok”. I think about his story every time I make the syrup and serve this. The ingredients don’t last long and I’m always searching for a reason to make another batch.
