A spicy, fruity, tequila cocktail? Yes, please! The Heat of Passion is made with Don Julio tequila and made by our favorite New York City bartender, Tim Cooper of Goldbar.
Combine Tequila Don Julio Reposado, habanero-infused orange blossom honey syrup, fresh passion fruit purée, and fresh lemon juice into cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain over ice into a rocks glass.
Garnish with a pineapple leaf and serve over ice.
Place all ingredients into a sauce pan and macerate the peppers. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes. Taste to achieve your desired spice level and then strain.
