Hot Monkey Cilantro Gimlet

If you like gimlets and spicy cocktails you are in for a treat! Perfect on a hot day, or a cool day you want to make hotter.

Muddle simple syrup and cilantro in a cocktail shaker. Add Hot Monkey, lime juice, and ice and shake until cold. Double strain into a chilled coupe glass or into an old-fashioned glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a sprig of cilantro.

*This cocktail is spicy! If you prefer yours a little more mild, increase your simple syrup to 1 1/4 oz or “split the base” and do 1 oz Hot Monkey and 1 oz Portland 90 Vodka.

Perfect 31

The Perfect 31 is one of our favorite ways to drink our Hot Monkey Pepper Flavored Vodka.
