Happy Monday, everyone!
It has recently been brought to our attention that we have not made a drink using the delicious elixer that is tequila in quite some time.This must be remedied immediately, don’t you think?
And so, we would kindly like to introduce you to the Spiced Tequila Punch!
This drink continues on our unrelenting Fall-theme, but don’t worry, the Autumn flavors here are minimal — mostly, it is just spicy deliciousness.
Advanced warning: this drink does include some cayenne pepper, so there is a bit of a kick to it.
For the Spiced Tequila Punch, you will need:
- 2 oz reposado or anejo tequila
- 1 oz cinnamon syrup
- 1/2 oz lime juice
- 2 dashes Aztec chocolate bitters
- sprinkle of cayenne pepper, for garnish
Gather your ingredients plus your fruit press, jiggers, and cocktail shaker.
First, shake your 2 dashes of Aztec chocolate bitters into the bottom of your glass. You really need the spicy chocolate bitters here, so do not substitute for simply chocolate. Hold your bottle vertically directly above the glass and shake. Each shake is one dash.
Now squeeze your 1/2 oz lime juice. This should be about 1/2 of a lime.
Now add in your 1 oz of cinnamon syrup. For the recipe, click here.
And now the tequila!
Add ice to your serving glass, and set it aside.
Now add ice to your shaker and shake the drink for 20-30 seconds before straining into your serving glass.
Last but not least, add your sprinkle of cayenne. We recommend shaking some into the palm of your hand and then pinching a bit into the drink –you do not want to accidentally shake too much in there or the drink will be too spicy.
And there you have it!
We hope you enjoy it, everyone!
