Red Hot Shot
- 16 whole cinnamon sucking candies, divided
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 lemon wedge
- 1/2 cup cinnamon schnapps
- 1/2 cup silver tequila
- Hot sauce
Place 8 cinnamon candies in a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Place the cinnamon dust on a small plate and stir in the salt. Run the lemon wedge around the edge of 8 shot glasses and dip them into the cinnamon-salt mixture.
In a cocktail shaker filled 1/2 way with ice, add the cinnamon schnapps and tequila. Shake well and pour into the prepared shot glasses. Top off with a dash of hot sauce and enjoy! Use the remaining cinnamon candies as a chaser.
