SPICED MAGGIE 調酒酒譜
最熱門的新式調酒之一在 21 世紀之初崛起：辣味 Margarita。Spiced Maggie 調酒受到這位超級巨星的啟發，恰到好處地調和了甜味、酸味和辣味，是一款讓人回味無窮的酒飲。如果您是辣椒新手，請少放點辣醬，但如果您已經習慣辣味了，就大膽多加一點吧！
如何製作 SPICED MAGGIE
•45ml Chivas Extra 13 Tequila Cask
•10ml Muyu 香根草利口酒
•1.25ml Valentina 辣醬
將 Muyu 香根草利口酒、Chivas Extra 13 Tequila Cask、萊姆汁和糖漿放入玻璃杯中攪拌。加入辣醬（可根據喜好隨意調整用量）和冰塊，然後用半顆萊姆裝飾。
HOT SAUCE & CITRUS COCKTAIL RECIPE
雖然我們不建議在每種酒飲中都添加香料（還是要有點堅持的），但酸味酒飲最適合來幾滴好東西了。發揮創意，在您最愛的酸味調酒（例如經典的威士忌酸酒）中加一點辣醬，或是用有著滿滿水果的 Tropical Chivas Sour 來場大改造。酸味調酒自帶清爽風味，因此加入您最愛的辣醬會讓它升級到全新水準。柑橘的酸味與辣醬的辛辣香結合，為一口都帶來泥土和胡椒的風味。
