The recipe for a Mexican Red Hot cocktail calls for Aftershock cinnamon schnapps. Really, any kind of cinnamon schnapps will give you the same flavor, but Aftershock is red while the others are clear. The red gives the drink a nice visual kick.
This cocktail does actually taste a lot like the candy it’s named for (the “Mexican” part is just the inclusion of a little tequila). Have one (or two, or…) when you’re in the mood for something sweet and fun and super-tasty.
The cinnamon will definitely knock you back.
- 1/4 ounce silver tequila
- 3/4 ounce Aftershock Hot & Cool cinnamon schnapps
Put the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir. Strain into a shot glass.
