Moonshine HotritasIn March 2015, Taste 4 Travel featured a “Best Citrus Cocktail” giveaway, and Chef Jacquie is happy to announce the winning recipe by John Ricciutti. Congratulations!


Seranno pepper infused Triple Sec. I slice 4 Seranno Peppers in half and drop them in a fifth bottle of triple sec for 4 months. The hot oil from the peppers infuses with the Triple Sec and gives it a nice flavor.

Any regular or Diet margarita/ Daiquiri liquid mix.

Mix up equal amounts of sugar and Margarita salt.

Rim a Mason Jar with Margarita juice. Spread the salt/ sugar mixture on a plate and dip mason jar rim in the mix.

Add Margarita mix and Moonshine.

Moonshine is flavorless and comes from the south, but you can buy it locally. If you can’t get Moinshine, use tequila.

Measurements below for one cocktail:
• 1/2 ounce Moonshine
• 1 ounce fresh lime juice
• 1/2 ounce hot Triple Sec
