11 Spicy Drink Recipes to Make at Home

Recipe Roundups

All the recipes you need for cocktails, juice blends, milkshakes and more.

In some of the hottest spots on earth, spicy food is central to the culinary tradition. You'll sweat over the som tam in Thailand, the vindaloo in India, the jerk chicken in Jamaica—and that sweat will help you cool down. These spicy drinks work the same way, so they're ideal as summer heats up. Some are inspired by classics—for example, Raines Law Room's Garden Paloma, made with blanco tequila and grapefruit, and spiced with a jalapeno agave syrup—while others may taste like nothing you've tried before.

Check out the slideshow for a look at 11 spicy drink recipes that will heat you up (and cool you off) this weekend »
