Infused gin and citrus juice give this bourbon and ginger cocktail a Thai kick!
I’m kinda on a bourbon kick lately.
After I made (and devoured) that Bourbon Pecan Tart I had a whole bottle of bourbon leftover so I decided to play with a few cocktail recipes.
As you know, I’m obsessed with Thai food and drink, so you know I had to dream up a Thai cocktail even though it’s the middle of winter and it’s currently disgusting and rainy outside.
Look how pretty those drinks are with the little umbrellas!
It may seem a little strange to you that I’m sharing a tropical-style cocktail in the middle of winter, but sometimes I feel like this time of year is when you would like a tropical drink the most.

Any drink with an umbrella in it, gets my attention and I am not kidding. Now having said that, it would be difficult to have the umbrella and have the drink in a sippy cup. I love the title of the drink and I love the drink. I am working on developing my palate for bourbon drinks. I know. I know. It’s difficult, but I am persistent. Ha!
