Recipe: Fat Cat Pineapple-Habanero Cocktail

Cocktail1Here is the first of our three spicy drink recipes that we created for our good friends at Datz Restaurant, in Tampa, for their pre-Gaspirilla event in 2013. The other two are the Fat Cat Rum Punch and the Fat Cat Habanero Rum Runner. All three use our Fat Cat Mexican-Style Habanero to add spice and some fresh chili flavor to the drink.

Here’s what we did:

Ingredients:

2 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. spiced rum
2 tsp. simple syrup
1/2 oz. lime juice
1/4-1/2 tbsp Fat Cat Mexican-Style Habanero (depending on heat level)

Instructions:

Stir ingredients well in cocktail shaker and then pour over ice into a Collins glass to serve. Garnish with a chunk of pineapple on the rim if desired.
