In case you haven’t heard, there were two really fucking important pieces of food news this week. First, a 110-year-old betch declared that shots and beer were the secret to her longevity. I don’t know about you, but I aspire to be that cool NOW, if not when I’m a fucking century old.
Second, doctors and other important medical people have declared that spicy food helps you live longer. I say, “fucking duh,” because like, obviously if you can handle ghost chili pepper salsa on your chips, you can handle probs anything life throws at you or your immune system.
To properly celebrate these findings and get our health on the right track, we decided a spicy drink is in order. What better than a margarita laced with habanero so that your throat is both cooled and on fire? Note, don’t touch your eyes, face, or, really, any of your skin while handling this shit, or else you’ll be like, def not chill.
- 1 cup good tequila (so, not Jose)
- ½ sliced habanero
- ½ oz Grand Marnier
- 2 limes, juiced
- 1 tbsp agave syrup
Combine the tequila with the sliced habanero in a bottle or Mason jar and shake. Set aside and let sit/infuse overnight.
In a shaker or pitcher add a handful of ice, the orange brandy, lime juice, and agave, then shake. Add the infused tequila a little at a time until the spice level is where you want it to be. This shit is HOT, so be careful and shit.
Spice and alcohol – the keys to life.
