Chef Tim Love claims that his “bad ass” spice rub is good in pretty much anything. In this week’s episode of Mad Genius Tips, F&W’s Justin Chapple puts it to the test. One way Love likes to use his spice rub is to rim a margarita glass for a spicy punch of flavor. Does Chapple approve? Spoiler alert: Yes. But rimming a glass isn’t the only way to add some spice to your cocktail. Here, six great recipes for delicious cocktails that pack heat.
1. Cajun Lemonade
A salute to the flavors of New Orleans, this cocktail spices up Napoleon House’s Pimm’s Cup (Pimm’s No. 1, lemonade and 7-Up) with a splash of Tabasco and a generous dose of rum or vodka.
2. Amante Picante Margarita
This spicy margarita combines three savory ingredients: jalapeño, cilantro and cucumber.
