Thai cuisine has its advantages — moderately healthy dishes that are ridiculously flavorful with a spicy infusion— but the biggest is its liberal use of the makrut leaf. Also known as the kaffir lime leaf, it's a fragrant and gives your nose a beautiful distraction.
Midnight Rambler, never one to back down from a unique ingredient, uses the makrut leaf and lemongrass to infuse gin for its Savory Hunter cocktail. With a slight spice from the Thai chili elements, it's really a Thai meal in a glass. But after three of these, you'll probably want a bowl of tom kha kai.
