Don’t Heat Around The Bush

Happy National Spicy Margarita Day!

This next cocktail may not look it, but it is indeed spicy! Instead of adding jalapeño peppers like most common spicy margaritas, I made a cayenne pepper & white grape syrup. It packs a nice heat. It introduces itself with some sweetness, but once you swallow, it gives you a gentle kick in the back of your throat. Enjoy!
