Carter Beats the Devil
My favorite cocktail of all time. I had to make it at home. If you get the chance, however, go to Flora in Oakland and try the real deal. Amazing!
Basically, it is just a spicy margarita. But it is so much more. I don't know how, but it goes beyond margarita to something really, really special and fancy tasting.
The first thing you need to do to make this cocktail is fill a jar with dried hot peppers, then cover the peppers with high proof rum (151). Let the jar sit for at least 2 weeks, then strain it. The 151 will now be SMOKING hot. Mmmmm.
-3oz tequila reposado
-1oz lime juice
-1tbs agave necter
-1tsp chili infusion (or to taste...start with VERY little)
Mix well. Strain out the ice (easy if you have a cocktail shaker..) and serve cold. It is especially nice after a run. I'm just sayin'. :-D
