Kaffir Lime Sour with Ginger
This tart, spiced cocktail, the winner of our 2011 Home Cook Challenge Cocktail contest, was inspired by a cocktail that winner Mo Lyon sampled at Seattle's now-closed Licorous. It's Thai-inspired flavors pair beautifully with Southeast Asian food; it's also perfect on its own as an afternoon sipper. Anna Stockwell

A raise of the glass to all our readers who submitted recipes to our Home Cook Challenge: Cocktails contest. We’re pleased to announce the winning recipe, submitted by SAVEUR user Mo Lyon, who will be receiving a $500 gift card to Sur La Table. This month’s winner is an exotic twist on the usual lime-tinged gimlet, with a tart kaffir lime-infused vodka pairing with spicy ginger and a dash of sugar.
