Spicy White Peach Lemonade

Ingredients: White peaches, chilli, sugar, water, lemon juice, garnish

Although this is actually an alcohol-free beverage, feel free to add your favourite liqueur into the mix. A splash of vodka, gin, tequila, or even champagne will bring a different level to this drink.

Strawberry Jalapeno Margarita

Ingredients: Tequila, Cointreau, agave nectar, lime juice, strawberries, jalapeno, sea salt

Try this classic jalapeno margarita, which is perfect for a hot summer day if you’re lounging by the pool. Garnish with fresh strawberries or other sweet seasonal fruits.

2

Mexican Mai Tai

Ingredients: Lime juice, tequila, Cointreau, orgeat, citrus salt

This cocktail provides a little less sweet and a little more sour take on a traditional Mai Tai cocktail. A splash of Cointreau keeps the body looking quite uniform, and don’t forget to add some citrus salt onto the rim.

3

Chilli Thai Cocktail

Ingredients: Sugar, Thai bird chiles, white peppercorns, dry gin, lemon juice, simple syrup

Now this is one of our favourites! If you like the spicy side of a Thai chilli, try this beverage out as soon as you can. If the gin feels a little too dry, swap it for some citrus vodka instead.

Spicy Michelada

Ingredients: Honey, salt, paprika, cayenne pepper, lime, beer, Worcestershire sauce, hot suace, soy sauce, jalapeno

Finally we’re bidding this list adieu with our favourite breakfast cocktail: the bloody mary – but better! A splash of beer is the perfect way to neutralise the drink if it’s on the spicier side.
