Here we are in 2013! I still can’t quite believe it. January is flying by. And all around me, I see lots of people who have such great aspirations. New Year’s resolutions and cleanse diets abound.
I’m not one for resolutions, and I can’t imagine I’d ever attempt a cleanse… so why not cleanse our cocktail? That’s an idea that even I can get behind.
1 oz. Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice (about one medium lime)
1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
1 oz. Water
1 1/2 oz. Chili Agave Liqueur
3-4 generous pinches of cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and simmer for 30 seconds. Remove from heat, pour into a tea cup or mug and garnish with a chili pepper.
It is cold out, so we decided to do this as a heated drink. It would probably taste just as delicious served cold.
So this may not be your typical cleanse, and this may not be your typical cocktail. But we’ve never been ones to adhere to the standard drinks. This is delicious! You’ll enjoy this much more than your New Year’s diet or cleanse!
What is your favorite way to celebrate your unconventional spirit… in a cocktail?
