“Berry Caliente” is a sweet and subtle organic cocktail made with a touch of aphrodisiac and a bit of delicious antioxidants.
Berry Caliente is a wonderful blend of sweet, sour and spice. The wait time of jalapeno-infused tequila is only 24 hours and absolutely worth it!
The Organic “Berry Caliente” Cocktail Recipe
- 2 ounces jalapeno infused organic tequila (see recipe below)
- 5 organic Blackberries
- 5 organic Raspberries
- 10 organic Blueberries
- 1/2 organic lime
- 1/2 ounce organic agave nectar
- 1 slice of a jalapeno pepper
Tools Needed: juicer, cocktail shaker, cocktail strainer, jar, small cooking strainer.
To prepare the organic jalapeno infused tequila: (Infusion time: 24 hours)
- Pour half of a bottle of organic tequila into a jar that can be completely sealed. Slice 2 organic Jalapeno Peppers lengthwise in half and place in the tequila. Seal the jar and place in a dark area (pantry or cupboard). Let sit for 24 hours then use a small strainer to remove the jalapenos and their seeds. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Tip: I like to use 1/2 of a bottle of organic tequila. That way, if the tequila is too spicy for you or a guest, you can dilute it with the remaining tequila.
To make the organic “Berry Caliente” : Juice all of the berries together and pour into the cocktail shaker. Squeeze half of a lime into the juice and add 1/2 ounce of organic agave nectar. Add about 1 cup of ice to the shaker and pour 2 ounces of jalapeno-infused organic over the ice. Shake very well and strain into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish with a slice of organic jalapeno pepper.
Alternative option: If you don’t like the heat of the jalapeno peppers, this cocktail is great without the infusion as well, just use regular organic tequila and your taste buds will be pleased!
Health Benefits: Fresh, organic berries have strong antioxidant properties and are wonderful for your immune system. Jalapeno peppers are natural fat-burners and are known for their aphrodisiac properties! Enjoy!
Organic Choice: Pesticide residues thrive on berries and are on the “must have” organic list, in addition, organic berries taste better and the organic choice is MUCH better for the environment.
