Cocktail Recipe: Tuk Tuk from Tin Roof Bistro



The well-regarded Tin Roof Bistro in Manhattan Beach is getting experimental with their cocktails. They shared this recipe with us, one that requires some pre-planning: you've got to infuse your tequila with chilies, and your coconut milk with Thai herbs. (Don't fret. "Infuse" is just a fancy word for "soak.") Enjoy this with some barbecued spareribs or chicken with sweet chili sauce.

Tuk Tuk
2 oz. Silver tequila infused with serrano chilies
1 oz. Coconut milk infusion (galanga, basil, kafir lime leaf, lemongrass)
Juice of ½ lime
½ oz. Agave

Combine all ingredients in shaking tin with ice. Strain into highball glass with fresh ice. Garnish with basil leaf.
