At Booker and Dax, a joint venture between JBF Award winners David Chang and Dave Arnold under the Momofuku empire, new techniques and technologies are used in the pursuit of making delicious cocktails. To celebrate inventor, mixologist, and partner Dave Arnold's recent Beard Award win, the NYC hot spot shared its recipe for the impossibly vibrant and refreshing Thai Basil Daiquiri. While most of Booker and Dax's innovative concoctions require special equipment and methods out of reach for the home bartender, this one is scaled back appropriately—just follow the instructions carefully. As Arnold cautions, "Don't omit the salt unless you are an enemy of quality." Get the recipe here.
