While this cocktail pick isn't technically served at a higher temperature, it brings the heat via a peppery, chartreuse-y mechanism. It is sure to burn in the best way with Milagro silver tequila, green chartreuse, lime and pineapple juices, a few drops of scorpion tincture, and garnished with a blistered fresno pepper. Muy caliente!

The Nickel recently added a hot cocktail to its menu that encapsulates both traditional standards and mixology ingenuity - a red chai toddy made with Breckenridge bourbon, red chai reduction, agave nectar, and garnished with a cinnamon stick, star anise, and lemon peel twirl.
