The “September Heatwave” Cocktail

If you like your whisky cocktails with a peachy, lemon sweetness and a spicy edge, you’ll love this “September Heatwave.”  I used crushed red pepper to give this tasty little cocktail the perfect spicy zing!

This cocktail is brought to you by my desire for one last heatwave in Brooklyn. I only had 1 pool day this entire summer. Time to heat things up!

I’m hoping for at least 1 more day of sweltering heat so I can mix up a few rounds of these and drink them in my kiddie pool.

I found the garnish to this cocktail just outside my brownstone in Brooklyn. A few lovely white flowers and a single hydrangea blossom.

I also thought it might be nice to garnish this drink with cured olives, although Luxardo cherries would also do very nicely!
