YOU ARE THE ARTIST OF YOUR OWN LIFE, DON’T HAND THE PAINTBRUSH TO ANYONE ELSE


Right now, I have heard so many people, myself included, become despondent at the changes happening in our world. Be it the Pandemic or the shift in the creative world towards video. there is always something that dampens our spirits.


But each one of us has the power to steer our own course. We call the shots in our lives. So, make of it what you will. You can’t change what you look at, but you can change what you see….

Ingredients:


30ml Tequila

20ml Triple Sec/ Starlino Torino

10ml Chilli Syrup (see below)

50ml Orange Juice (I clarified mine for a crisp finish)


Chilli Syrup


2 Birds Eye Chillies, chopped

100g Sugar

100ml Water


Ice to shake


Method:


1. Begin with the chilli syrup. Add all ingredients to a small pan and heat over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and boil for 3 minutes. remove and allow to cool to room temperature.

2. Strain into a bottle, discard the chilli and seal. This will keep for a year.

3. For the cocktail, add all ingredients to a shaker with 3 cubes ice. Fill a small glass with ice to chill.

4. Shae for 30 seconds, discard the ice in the glass and strain through a hawthorn strainer. Garnish with orange & chilli. Serve with a side of winter sun.
