If you are a fan of them red hot chili peppers and gin, and always wondered whether mixing the two would be a good idea, then I have one advice to you: spice up your gin.
The capsaicin released from the chili gives the right kick and warmth- a true mood changer.
Start by cutting the Chili lengthwise and drop it in the glass, and slightly mash the chilly using a spatula, in order for it to release its flavors. Once enough failovers have been released, add a squeeze of lemon, followed by a pinch of salt, ice and your desired amount of gin. Alternatively, you could replace the lemon and the salt with a slice of cucumber and a few leaves of coriander. However, never forget the G&T.
