 1. Infused into honey

For a homemade hot honey fit for drizzling over everything from fried chicken to pizza to ice cream, heat 1 cup honey + 2 Tbsp. Firecracker Dust in a small saucepan over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes (don't let it come to a boil). Stir in 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.

2. As a cocktail rim

Take your margarita or Bloody Mary to the next level with this kicked-up cocktail rim:

  • Pour a bit of Firecracker Dust onto a small plate.
  • Coat the rim of each glass with a bit of lemon or lime juice, then dip into seasoning.
