Author Notes

A simple drink, let's just call it a gin and tonic with Mekhong instead of gin. The tonic gives it a British-colonist-in-the-tropics feel, warding off malaria and such. Because lime is so essential to Thai cooking, some could be convinced that this is a local cocktail. Whereas an acceptable gin and tonic can still be made with not-so-good tonic, Mekhong isn't as forgiving in this regard, so please use a good tonic. —Hi, I'm Brian.
