Where there’s smoke there’s fire. The heat in this Ready Aim Fire Cocktail comes from Bittermens Hellfire Habanero Shrub – an ingredient that has a permanent place in my bar. You should try some. It’s terrific in all sorts of tequila and mezcal cocktails. I received no compensation to make that statement.
- 2 ounce mezcal joven
- 1 ounce honey-pineapple syrup (http://www.sippitysup.com/recipe/honey-pineapple-syrup-pink-peppercorns/)
- ½ ounce fresh pineapple juice
- ½ ounce fresh lime juice
- 2–3 dash Bittermens Hellfire Habanero Shrub
- 1 slice habanero (as garnish, optional)
Add mezcal, hoeney-pineapple syrup, pineapple juice, lime juice, and habanero shrub to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with floating slice of habanero (if using).
