This cozy winter cocktail is named after the Ang Ka, a popular nature trail at Doi Inthanon National Park, home of Thailand’s highest mountain. The ingredients are inspired by my father’s love of classic Coca-Cola. Although I never really cared for it, nostalgia blooms from the flavors because it reminds me of my dad. Inspired by childhood nostalgia, I created a Coca-Cola Amaro featuring a mix of reduced Coca-Cola and tonic, with sugar, water, lactic acid, Szechuan peppercorn, mint, clove,
lemongrass and orange peel.
