Lifestyle- Cocktail Thursday: Spicy Sriracha Cocktail Recipes

sriracha bottle

Can we address the spicy condiment in the room please?  Sriracha.  It. Is. Everywhere.  Being from SoCal I cannot go to anyone’s home, or a restaurant without someone breaking out the Sriracha.  The super spicy SoCal sauce has taken over the American taste buds.  And now it is in our cocktails.

I have two hot and spicy Sriracha cocktails for you to break out next time your friends come over for movie night: Dante’s Essence and the Kick-Start.  If you like it on your tater tots, this will be a nice twist to your drink.

Cocktail Thursday: Sweet & Cynful Tea

Sobieski Cynamon Vodka Chai Tea Cocktail

 

This SoCal pinup is COLD!  Not East Coast cold, but there is still a chill that takes forever to warm up to out here.  I know, cry me a river.  And with National Cinnamon Day fast approaching (March 3), I decided to get a head start.

This TEA cocktail uses not only Chai tea, but also Sobieski Cynamon Vodka.  Can you say yum?  This should shake off those icicles for sure!

Grab a cup and snuggle in front of the fire.

1 oz. Sobieski Cynamon Vodka

4 oz. chai tea

1 oz. honey
Brew a cup of chai tea and add honey and stir until dissolved.  Fill a coffee mug with
chai tea and add Sobieski Cynamon Vodka. Stir and serve.

Just time to linger over good food with good friends. And since you don’t have any pressing things to get done, why not have a little cocktail?
