Dragon's Fury Cocktail

Dragon's Fury Cocktail
Recipe by Dragon

I made this cocktail for my last 7 Deadly Sins dinner. I started the dinner with Wrath and I wanted a cocktail that would get everyone's attention. Oh this got people's attention all right! It was spicy, sweet and oh so yummy. I asked each of the guests to try a little of the syrup to see how much heat they could handle and adjusted the cocktail to their tastes....but I did dare them to be brave and most were. I loved this cocktail. I hope you do too. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Lime wedges
1 part scotch bonnet-ginger syrup (or to taste) *see below
3 parts vodka
3 parts mango nectar
1 part blood orange juice

Garnish Options:
Cane sugar
Fresh mango slices
Lime slices

Scotch Bonnet & Ginger Syrup:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 scotch bonnet peppers, trimmed & cut in half
2 oz piece of ginger, peeled & sliced thickly

Directions:

* Syrup:
1. Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan. Heat the mixture until the sugar & water dissolve and just before boiling. Take off the heat.

2. Remove scotch bonnet peppers about 5 minutes after taking it off the heat. Leave the ginger to steep in the syrup as it cools completely.

3. Strain the syrup into a jar, cover and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks.

Cocktail:
1. Muddle the lime and syrup in a chilled shaker.

2. Fill with ice and add the vodka, mango nectar and blood orange juice.

3. Shake well and strain into chilled martini glass.

4. Garnish to taste.

Ginger and mango!! Ooh that sounds good. I actually do have vodka in my house. I just need the mango nectar!

What a FABULOUS NAME- I must try it based on that alone (the flavors are hard to say no to, as well)!
Thank you!
