Spicy and sweet, this cocktail combines unusual flavors that blend beautifully. Try this and other killer tequila cocktails for summer.

Notes

For a bottle of honey-sriracha syrup, I combined ½ cup sriracha, ½ cup honey, and ¾ cup water on the stove until all the solids were dissolved, and then allowed the syrup to cool.

For the peach puree, I pitted, skinned, and then blended a dozen fresh peaches with the juice from a lemon, then scooped the puree into an airtight container.

The puree should last up to 3 days in the fridge, the syrup over a week. The above recipe serves 1 person, but the amount of syrup and puree was for a whole party.

Ingredients

  • ½ Ounce Honey-Sriracha syrup
  • 1 ½ Ounce peach puree
  • 1 ½ Ounce Avión tequila
  • Seltzer to top

Directions

In a cocktail shaker filled partway with ice, combine the honey-sriracha syrup, peach purée, and tequila. Shake until cold, then strain into a coupe glass. Top with seltzer and garnish with a fresh peach slice.
