A muddler, some strawberries, limes, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and agave syrup....Sounds like a helluva meal right? Well this is good for your palate, but you wont eat it, adding one more thing and you have my custom "Luxury Drop" and cocktail, the "Chicago Fire"
Now whats a luxury drop you may ask? Well here's a little background on how i came up with the "Chicago Fire".
So a luxury drop is not a 1oz shot, but not a full cocktail either. Its about 2oz of alcohol with an array of tastes inside it. So here is the "Chicago Fire"
Muddle 2 strawberries and 2 Lime
1 part Agave syrup
1.5 oz Don Julio
Dash of black pepper
Dash of Cayenne Pepper
Shake and strain
Float Cinnamon on top
Sounds crazy right??? Its super sweet but also spicy! So it hit each and every sense inside your tongue. Now unfortunately we didn't win the contest, BUT I had the opportunity to headline this drink at a private bday celebration over the weekend and needless to say everyone LOVED this drink! Most of the guys enjoyed it a little more spicy, and the ladies liked it sweeter. But its to your personal taste.
I doubled up on the Tequila and made it 2 1/2oz & by doing that it made the cocktail kick like nobodies business. This is a drink that can be made as a shot, or as a full blown cocktail. so if you love tequila, and like sweet and spicy,this is the drink for you!!
Until Next time
