Thai Tom Collins Cocktail
This cocktail was the perfect accompaniment to my meal at Yorkville's Kasa Moto restaurant.
Servings 1 person
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 pieces stalk lemongrass chopped into large
- 2 ounces Gin
- 1/2 ounce Lemongrass Syrup see recipe above
- 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
- Soda water
- Thai Basil to garnish
Mix water and sugar in a pot over medium heat until sugar and water combine.
Add lemongrass pieces and cook over low heat for about 5 minutes to infuse lemongrass flavour into syrup.
Discard lemongrass pieces and store syrup in airtight container (or make a bunch of cocktails for you and your friends)!
Shake gin, lemongrass syrup and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with ice.
Pour into a tall glass full of ice and top with soda water.
Garnish with Thai basil leaves (or regular basil leaves will be just as delicious)!
