In a shaker or pitcher add a handful of ice, the tequila, orange brandy, lime juice and the agave syrup. Shake vigorously. Strain into a martini glass and serve.
Cut the habanero in half (do not touch your eyes after handling the chile pepper). Push the 2 halves into the bottle of tequila. Close the lid and let it sit for at least 24 hours. You can leave the chile pepper in the bottle until the tequila is gone.
Take a sip and feel the burn go from the roof of your mouth down your throat. Your palate is now open and ready to enjoy your meal!
