Infused alcohol is a ton of fun and the only pure way to get non - artificial flavors in your spirts. They take some work and time but they are so worth it. Today we are going to hit you with a spicy sweet version of Tequila Sunrise we like to call The Heated Kiss.
One of our top Barflies has asked for a Spicy Sweet cocktail, so prepare your taste buds for a wild ride of bursting heat with the sweetness of a kiss!
First thing we are going to need to make is our infused tequila, keep in mind you want to do this for at least 48 hours to a week before you are ready to call any spirt infused.
Pro Tip: Letting it sit longer will allow more flavor to be infused into your spirt. Lets talk supplies and ingredients:

Instructions for making infused Tequila:
Wash mason jar and let dry
