Save 10% When You Get 3 Bottles of Proof Syrup With Code: 3BOTTLE

We’re Sweet on Spicy

There’s a chill in the air, still, so we’re warming up from the inside with these spicy cocktails

By L. Eno

Because sometimes we like our liquor with a little kick to it, here are our favorite spicy (and spiced) cocktails, all in one spot. We’ve sorted them into categories by type of heat: Gingery, Peppery, and Spiced. With all of these recipes, adjust spiciness to your liking; in our experience, a little extra heat is rarely a bad thing.
