Thai Basil Rum Slushie

Matthew Kelly/Supercall

A riff on the beloved tiki-classic, the Missionary's Downfall, this icy, slushy cocktail invokes the tangy-savory flavors of Thai cuisine. There’s fresh Thai basil, which adds vibrant, spicy depth; dark and rich coconut sugar; and bright, sour lemongrass. Blended with crushed ice, this tropical cocktail gets an extra kick from both a white rum and a brazenly funky Rhum Agricole. Sip it solo or with a bowl of tom yum.
