Spicy Pineapple Cocktail

Say hello to my new favorite summer cocktail…for now 🙂  I have become a pretty big fan of spicy cocktails as I feel like they are more unexpected, flavorful and they really pack a punch!  It’s a GORGEOUS day out and it’s my weekend so I whipped up this cocktail using my favorite drinking vinegar from Pok Pok.  If you have not tried these, GO OUT AND GET ONE NOW!  A few spots besides online to get it if you are in the Seattle area are: Sugarpill and Mrs. Cook’s.   If you know of any other places, feel free to add in the comments section.

For vodka:

5 dried peppers
3 cups of Tito’s Vodka

I infused peppers in vodka for about 3 months.  It is not necessary to do it this long, I just kinda forgot about it.  Strain vodka and transfer to new jar for use.

 For Cilantro Simple Syrup

1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
Handful of rinsed cilantro

Put water in saucepan and bring to a boil.
Slowly add sugar while stirring.
Remove from heat and add cilantro.  Be sure to smash it in there a bit to bring out the flavor.
Let cool and strain cilantro.
You can add to jar and  refrigerate until used.
