Best of Both Worlds

In 2006, I was introduced to Thai Palace in Holland, MI. Nine years later, I still get the same order, Gang Kiew Wan with Chicken- Medium spice, and a half order of Baby Egg Rolls. The only thing that has changed over the years is what I have to drink with the meal. Back in the day, my drink of choice was cheap, American beer. After that, I really started to appreciate craft and international beer. But since I started working at Coppercraft, spirits have taken over my pallet; specifically Gin and Tonics. They are refreshing and light. It pairs perfectly with a heavier meal such as my Gang Kiew Wan. The citrus from the lime and the botanicals from the Gin bring out the spices of Thai food, maybe muddle a little basil for a dramatic twist? Unfortunately, Thai Palace doesn’t have Coppercraft, I’ll work on it and imagine what a G&T would taste like at Thai Palace if it was made with Coppercraft Gin. With the 13 botanicals that Coppercraft blends, it really would be the best of both worlds.
