Ingredients

  • ½ cup iced Thai tea (I recommend this brand)

  • ½ cup coconut milk (full-fat)

  • ¼ cup sweetened condensed milk

  • ½ cup Lime juice

Instructions

Make Thai tea according to package instructions. To a tall glass filled with ice, add the Thai tea, coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, and lime juice.

To make it better: To the shaker, add 2 each of star anise pods, whole cardamom and whole

cloves. Make recipe as instructed above, straining out the pods before serving.

To make it best: To sweeten the tea up a bit, you can make a lemongrass simple syrup. In a small saucepan, combine ½ cup sugar and ½ cup water. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar completely dissolves. Remove from heat and add ¼ cup sliced lemongrass stalks. Cover and allow the mixture to steep for 30 minutes. Strain out lemongrass before using the simple syrup. Add 1 tsp at a time to limeade to taste until desired sweetness is reached.
