Looks like the weather is going to be sunny and gorgeous here in Boston- one last hurruh for summer.
Maybe time for one last batch of margaritas too? Who am I kidding, I need no excuse to whip up a batch of margs.
You could take the time to make your own simple syrup for this cocktail- boil up some honey, sugar, water, and spicy peppers. But why do the work when you can just as simply throw in some Mike's Hot Honey? Made in Brooklyn and sold locally at Olives and Grace (remember Sofi and this shop from my interview last week?). You won't be able to stop using it. From cocktails to bruschetta (which I used it on last night). It's amazing. I think I've finally found a condiment that will give sriracha a run for its money.
But you came here for a cocktail!
Heat and Honey Margarita
3 limes, juiced
Mike's hot honey to taste (use it in place of simple syrup or add with- it's hot!! Be sure to taste it!)
6 jiggers tequila
1.5 jigger cointreau
Combine all in shaker, shaker her up, and pour! Sante!
