If tequila had personality, it would be loud, aggressive and in-your-face. This original cocktail attempts to capture that personality into a drinkable form. Featuring jalapeño-infused tequila, lime, Aperol and grapefruit cordial, The Fire is sweet, tart and spicy all at the same time.
What you need
- 2 oz. jalapeño-infused tequila
- 0.5 oz. Aperol
- 0.75 oz. lime juice
- 0.5 oz. grapefruit cordial
- Jalapeño slice
How it’s made
Add all ingredients but the jalapeño slice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake, then double-strain into a coupe. Garnish with the jalapeño slice.
To make the jalopeño-infused tequila, use about 1 jalopeño per 250ml of tequila. Simply slice the jalopeño and add it to a sealed container with the tequila. Start tasting the tequila after about 10 minutes and stop when it reaches an appropriate level of spicyness. You shouldn't need more than 20 minutes of steeping.
Here's how to make our grapefruit cordial. Zest one grapefruit set zest aside. Juice the grapefruit and two lemons. Weigh the juice and measure out an equivalent amount of sugar. Pour the juice and sugar into a sealable container and add zest. Seal, shake until sugar is dissolved, and leave to infuse for 24 hours. Strain through a fine mesh strainer.
