Dino and I went out for our anniversary dinner, and I had an awesome beverage there. I wanted to try to recreate it at home, and I think I nailed it! I probably put about 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne between 2 glasses, but do it to your taste. The spice kind of sneaks up on you afterward, and it's a deliciously different cocktail. You have to try this one out!
