When you put a peppers in a cocktail you have my attention, I love spicy cocktails and the Absolut Mango Spice does spicy right. The key to using pepper in cocktails is two fold: use the pepper sparingly and offset the spice with a contrasting flavor. In this one the spice is paired with sweet mango (Absolut Mango Vodka and nectar), which adds depth and cools it down.

Also notice just two slices of jalapeno are muddled and a third is a garnish: stick to that. Spicy drinks are not like spicy foods and can easily become unpalatable - nothing can salvage an overly spicy drink. Trust me, I've tried. I do prefer a citrus garnish, though.
