Mekhong: The Spirit of Thailand

MekhongCocktails.jpgWe just found out about a new liquor from Thailand called Mekhong, which is apparently made a bit sweet to balance out the spiciness of the food. It's a blended distilled drink that contains sugar and rice, two of our favorite foods, and it sounds pretty high on our list of "must tries." Sounds like it's pretty drinkable, and it's quite possible we'd end up having a bit too much of it - luckily, what happens in Bangkok, stays in Bangkok.

The spirit is made with a bit of the spiritualism that envelops Thailand in mind. It's distilled and fermented and then goes in to several traditional and symbolic stages related to the five natural elements: earth, water, air/wind, fire and aether (the mythical upper air that encompasses everything).
