Thai Basil Mojito

READY IN: 4mins
Recipe by momaphet

Though it originates in Latin America, a Mojito already shares ingredients that compliment Thai foods. Sugary sweetness, sharp lime juice, and mint are a part of Thai salads like laap. Adding palm sugar instead of cane sugar brings a deeper flavor to the sweetness that balances this cocktail – plus, palm sugar paste dissolves more easily than sugar crystals. The addition of Thai basil gives this Mojito a surprising, peppery kick.
