Zeavola Resort’s Much Needed Tom Yam Martini Recipe.

Thailand. – I didn’t know I liked Martinis …

Until Zeavola Resort’s GM Florian Hallerman ordered me their signature Tom Yam Martini as I sat with my feet in the sand just metres from the lapping waves, having dinner under a warm inky sky.

On both nights of my stay, without asking, my ice-cold salt rimmed cocktail glass was delivered, the protruding stick of lemongrass closely resembling a straw in the soft light.

It was spicy and delicious with a bite that complimented my vegetarian Thai curry and the seductive mood.

Once back, I wrote and asked for the recipe so I could share it here:

  • 45ml of Vodka
  • 15ml of Triple Sec
  • 60ml of Lemon Juice
  • 2g of chopped Lime
  • 2g finely chopped Chilies
  • A stick of Lemongrass
  • A dash of sugar syrup

Mix it all in a cocktail shaker and pour into a pre-chilled salt rimmed glass. Make enough for more than one and sit as you savour the familiar spices, in a drink.

It is true that senses are often heightened when we travel, although I’ve tried this recipe since getting home, and even though I couldn’t mimic the ingredients exactly, it was equally tasty.
