Hands down the hottest thing we could find in Thailand (which is saying something), this martini isn't content with stripping your insides, it also kicks your ass by coating your tongue, lips, and mouth with fire that won't go away.


750ml high quality vodka
2 TB dried red Thai chilis
1.5 TB black peppercorns, lightly crushed
Galangal syrup (recipe below)


Add black pepper and chilis to vodka. After three days, remove the chilis. Mix 2 oz. infused vodka with 1 oz. galangal syrup to make a martini, or mix the vodka half and half with a little bit of lemongrass lemonade to make a pretty damn good shot. I suggest against making this with fresh chilis, as the "green" taste of fresh chilis is a bit overpowering.

For galangal syrup:
1 cup water
1/2 cup palm sugar
5 TB galangal, thinly sliced

Bring all ingredients to simmer. Continue to simmer for 3 minutes - make sure all sugar is dissolved. Let mixture sit 1 hour for flavors to develop and strain.
