Cocktails

During the peak of the pandemic, we decided to test some spicy cocktails, and these were our favorites!

SPICY PINEAPPLE MARGARITA

2oz reposado tequila
1oz cointreau or triple sec
1oz freshly squeezed lime juice
1oz pineapple juice
½ tsp Ladykillers Pineapple & Habanero hot sauce
Shake on ice and serve in a Tajín rimmed glass

SPICY BLUEBERRY MOJITO

1/4 c blueberries
20 mint leaves
2oz simple syrup
4oz rum
2oz fresh squeezed lime juice
2 dash orange bitters
1/2 tsp Ladykillers Blueberry & Scotch Bonnet hot sauce
+ club soda (to top off glass)
Muddle blueberries and mint in cocktail shaker. Add syrup and muddle again to help macerate juices into syrup. Add all other ingredients and 3 ice cubes. Shake well and serve in your favourite cocktail glass on ice. Top it with club soda

SPICY MAI TAI

2oz rum (we used dark but anything will work!)
3/4oz freshly squeezed lime juice
3/4oz cointreau
1/3oz rich simple syrup
1/4oz orgeat
1 tsp Ladykillers Tamarind & Scotch Bonnet hot sauce

Put everything in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well for 30 seconds. Serve on ice with lime. Also serves well with mint, marichino cherries and pineapple.

For a slightly spicer drink, add an extra 1/2 tsp Ladykillers Tamarind & Scotch Bonnet sauce.
For a sweeter drink, add an extra 1/4 oz of orgeat.
