Spicy and sweet, this homage to warmer weather heats up your tastebuds. Tropical fruits and a spicy chili rim are the perfect marriage of flavors.
Tropical Fire Cocktail
Autumn colors and flavors really come to light in October. Leaves are changing...days are getting shorter, and nights are getting colder. What would normally be a summer or warm-weather beverage gets a chilly weather facelift with a spicy glass rim.
Firecracker Dust, equal parts spicy and tropical in flavor profile, has so many uses. Delicious on dry-rubbed ribs or wings, or just over popcorn; this dynamic spice blend is amazing as a cocktail or mocktail glass rim. To celebrate the season, we recently curated a fall feast. The Tropical Fire Cocktail was our starter and the star of the show!
If you are hosting a holiday event or just want an evening elixir, this recipe hits all the marks. Tropical fruit juice and spicy ginger beer marry to make a harmonious blend. The Firecracker Dust puts this one over the top! With each sip you get a little spicy chili flavor and a mouthful of juicy tropical fruit. Perfection!
