    Feisty's Note:

    This is my own invention based on a spicy cocktail that Stephan Pyles, my culinary idol, serves in his restaurant. You will need to garnish the drink as I have, or in some manner to let your guests know about the kick that they are about to experience! The tamarind nectar is the perfect contrast to the infused tequila. I dare you to try this--it's good. Not too hot, just a little back heat that's put out nicely by the tamarind nectar. It will have you going back for more!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 1



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 ounce chile-infused tequila
    • 1 ounce Grand Marnier
    • 1 1/2 ounces prepared sweet-and-sour mix
    • 3 ounces tamarind nectar
    • margarita salt, for garnish
    • additional prepared sweet-and-sour mix, for garnish
    • red jalapeno chile, slices for garnish
    • 2 serrano peppers, for infusing the tequila


    1. 1
      To make the infused tequila, use an inexpensive white tequila like Hornitos. Open the bottle, pour out about 1-1/2 ounces to make room for the serrano peppers, and drink the tequila shot. (It's part of the recipe!) Slice the 2 serrano peppers in half lengthwise and stuff them into the bottle of tequila. After 2 days, strain the tequila and remove the peppers.
    2. 2
      To make the cocktail, pour a small amount of sweet & sour into a bowl and dip the edge of a 12-ounce highball glass into the mix and then into the margarita salt and shake off the excess. Fill the glass with ice, and then pour the tequila, Grand Marnier, sweet & sour and Tamarind nectar into the glass in the order given. Cut a slit into one edge of a jalapeno pepper slice and garnish glass with pepper.
