I love this recipe for Kaffir Lime Lemonade, and you can just add vodka or rum to it: http://events.nytimes.com...

Mint muddled with peeled and seeded cucumber, tonic water, lime and gin.

This is a really yummy cocktail, and the ginger liqueur should pair with Thai food nicely.
I also am in love with the Aviation cocktail (especially when made with Aviation Gin) = 2 oz gin, 1/2 oz lemon juice, 1/2 maraschino liqueur, and 1/4 oz crème de violette.
This would be a good Thai play on a Mojito: http://www.epicurious.com...
What about an agua fresca with booze? This needs to sit for at least 8 hours but it is sooooo worth it. Take 3-4 cucumbers - peeled and seeded and put into a pitcher. Add the juice of 3 limes. Add 1/2 cup of sugar. Add 1/2 a jalapeno (ribs and seeds removed). Add 6-7 cups of water. Blend with an immersion blender. Let the mixture sit in the refrigerator 8 hours or overnight. Strain liquid into another pitcher. Mix with vodka (I'll let you decide how much). Serve over ice with lime wedges. If you're feeling fancy you can add a little ginger ale. Definitely a more entertaining way to have cooling cucumbers than regular raita.
Ginger syrup, sour mango puree, liquour of choice and garnish with Pomegranate seeds.
