The Thai Terror

Postby Zak Griffin » Wed May 11, 2011 3:21 pm

I've been making this for a few years now and it's a very good drink for the entertainment value if for nothing else.
Passed round the table, shot glasses are filled and knocked down. 8-)

It's quite amusing when people ask what's in it and you tell them Limes, Lemongrass, Ginger and stuff. Then when it's just sliding down their throat you say;

"And a bit of Chilli" :lol: :lol:

It's been sampled by plenty and those with a taste for hot and spicy are in awe.
It's often requested at BBQ's, but best served in small shot glasses.

Take 1 litre of 50% clear spirit.

Peel and Juice of 4 small limes from my tree (not quite ripe yet) i also use lemonades (while green) when the limes aren't good.

2 BirdsEye Chillies (seeds removed)

1 home smoked Habernero

About a tablespoon of japanese Pickled Ginger same of fresh ginger works well too

A smashed stalk of Lemongrass from the garden.

I put a small piece of Dorset naga chilli in my last lot

Allow this to macerate for 3-8 hours or by taste. When it's very hot strain and reserve, then add 1 more litre to the ingredients, leave for a couple weeks.

Blend the two portions together, to taste (you may well end up just mixing them both together).

This turns out a brilliant lime green and has a fiery heat. You could play around with it and add some mint and coriander for a true thai taste. I've done it with 50/50 Coriander spirit and neutral.
