Here’s what La Diva Diabolita did! I got a large plastic container with a spigot and added:
1.75 liters of vodka (not Gray Goose but something more economical)
1 large jalapeno, quartered, seeds and all
10 black peppercorns
After two weeks, the flavor is EXCELLENT! Wow, the taste is slighty sweet from the mango and the hit from the pepper and chili comes on like a slow burn. Loverly, darlings, almost addictive!
2 oz. mango chili pepper vodka (I’ve found that Absolut also makes a mango black pepper vodka!)
1/2 fresh lime, squeezed
1/2 oz. chili simple syrup (simple syrup infused with birds eye chilies or jalapenos a few days before!)
1/2 c fresh mango
Blend, baby, blend! Yeah, I know blended drinks are not “in” anymore but I still love to serve these in the summer and have been slurping, er, drinking this particular one very ladylike for years! I usually make it with the chili syrup and tequila though for mango chili margaritas! The peppery mango is so perfect for blended drinks and the flavor is so “more-ish” and then all of a sudden, that chili hits you! BAM! (DAMN that Emeril, I feel I can’t say that word anymore without thinking of him!)
Now, that’s a FLAMIN’ HOT LA DIABOLITA DRINK Darlin’!
OH, IT BURNS, IT BURNS!
