3 oranges, sliced thin
2 cinnamon sticks
2 ruby peppers
3 fresno peppers, sliced
combine with roughly two bottles of white tequila. soak for 4-5 days. any more and the spice gets out of hand.
i’m really happy with how this one came out. the orange and cinnamon form a lovely bridge between the smoke and spice of the tequila and the medium-hot spice plateau the peppers take you to. it’s nice, in that it levels out just when you think it’s going to get too hot, and stays with you for just a minute or two before it dissipates, leaving a lingering warmth in the belly.
