1/2-ounce orange brandy

2 limes, juiced

1 tablespoon agave syrup

Spiced Tequila:

750ml bottle silver tequila (recommended: Herradura)

1 fresh orange habanero pepper (may substitute jalapeno or serrano)


  1. 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.

Spiced Tequila:

  1. 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.
