Fire Cider Recipes

It's A Medicinal Tonic. It's A Cocktail Mixer. It's Both…and More!

La Chupacabra

One of our super fans on Facebook, Christy Stine from Shrewsbury MA, shared this fabulous cocktail recipe that was created by her favorite mixologist -who also happens to be her husband- Blaine Swift.

Christy told me that “When we have fresh chiles in the fridge (green or red, usually jalapeños or the long somewhat fleshy Chinese variety) Blaine will seed and slice them, muddle them a bit in the drink before shaking. Makes a terrific drink even terrificker! The smoked salt really puts this one in the ‘crave’ range, too.  We buy our Fire Cider at the Berry Farm in NY but we’ll have to make a trip to the Berkshires sometime!”  We think you’ll love this spicy, smoky tequila cocktail as much as we do.  Cheers to Christy and Blaine and Spring and of course, the weekend!
