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.
- 2 oz Hot Monkey Pepper Flavored Vodka*
- 1 oz lime juice
- 3/4 oz simple syrup*
- 10-12 cilantro leaves
- 1 cilantro sprig for garnish
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.
