I can reassure you this pomegranate smoky cocktail will blown your mind away, it is a well balance creation by Nicci Stringfellow; if you like smoky this is the cocktail for you!

 Kankun™ Chipotle Sauce has a wonderful smokiness and I wanted to enhance this with the Lapsang Souchong tea. Making a simple syrup with strong tea is a great way to add complexity to simple cocktails. The pomegranate juice adds a nice, deep background to show off the tart raspberries and oaky el Jimador reposado tequila. Nicci Stringfellow
