Can pesto be made with Thai basil (horapha)?

I usually make pesto with regular sweet basil, but I've been growing a huge pot of Thai basil outside and am thinking of using some of it soon for pesto. I'm a little concerned, though, that the pesto may have too much of a licorice-like flavor, since Thai basil is stronger than regular. Has anyone tried this?
