This refreshing warm-weather cocktail is easy to prepare and ideal for your next barbecue or outdoor dinner party, where its boozy heat is a welcome complement to soaring temps.

3⁄4 oz Rose’s Lime Cordial

2 to 3 dashes Tabasco

Lime wheel

Fresh cracked pepper

Directions

Shake all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Grind fresh cracked pepper on top and garnish with a lime wheel. Repeat as necessary.
