Are you planning to invite friends to a party? You can wow them with this fresh and vibrant long verdita spicy cocktail recipe prepared by my dearest friend Nicci Stringfellow.  I can reassure you it is not as difficult as you’d expect and it is just delicious!

Using the Kankun™ Jalapeño sauce as the inspiration here I wanted to make a spicy cocktail that was authentic, fresh and bright. The sweetness of the pineapple works really well with the bright flavours of mint and coriander, while the vegetal notes of the el Jimador blanco tequila matches beautifully with the bite of the Kankun™ Jalapeño sauce.
