  • These incredible cocktails are bursting with Eastern Thai flavors

Sukhumvit's new Eastern Thai restaurant not only serves deliciously authentic food, it's also got an impressive drinks list.

Set in a stylish, contemporary brick and wood house, Sri Trat lets you enjoy Eastern classics like moo chamuang (pork curry with chamuang leaves, B220), barracuda spicy salad (B220) and massaman curry with unripe durian (B280).

The signature cocktails are the real deal, too, created by Chennarong “Jan” Bhumichitr, the senior brand ambassador at Diageo Moet Hennessy (Thailand), with Paradee “Bell” Sahathanasomboon, previously of Vesper, serving as head bartender.

Like the food, the cocktails come brimming with familiar Thai flavors. The results are sophisticated, easy to drink and very easy on the eye.  

Salacca Fizz

The purple-tinged Salacca Fizz (B360) features the pungent, sour taste of salak (aka snake fruit), which is made into a syrup and mixed with butterfly pea-infused gin, lime, cream, egg white and orange blossom, garnished with butterfly pea flower and edible gold flake candy. An intriguing twist on the classic gin fizz, this drink tastes as good as it looks. 

The Garden

Light and refreshing, The Garden (B340) is a mix of Pimm’s No. 1 Cup, lychee liqueur, lime juice, elderflower and rambutan syrup, dehydrated orange and pieces of fresh rambutan that's topped with rose lemonade and garnished with thyme. It's the kind of cocktail that perfect for drinking outside in the garden, with the scent of elderflower and the sweet and sour flavor of rambutan going so well with the Pimm’s.

Siam Ruby

Siam Ruby (B340), meanwhile, sees pomegranate juice mixed with gin, raspberry puree, Falernum (a Caribbean liqueur with hints of almond, ginger and cloves) and lime, topped with elderflower foam, then sprinkled with nutmeg and garnished with pandan leaf with fresh pomegranate. Bursting with freshness, this drink requires you to drink straight from the glass (no straw!) for the full aromatic experience.
