Sweet and spicy meet bourbon in this delicious and flavorful summer cocktail recipe. Muddled with fresh strawberries, lime, jalapeño slices, and topped with ginger beer, this Sweet + Spicy Bourbon Cocktail is a winning combination of flavors to beat the summer heat.


  • 1.5 ounces bourbon
  • 6 slices strawberries
  • 2-3 slices jalapeño*
  • .5 ounce lime juice
  • 3 ounces ginger beer
  • Tajin - (to rim glass)
  • lime slice, strawberry, jalapeño wheel - (as garnish)


  • Begin by using a cut lime to wet half the edge of a glass. Then dip into the tajin.
  • Add the lime juice to the glass along with the sliced strawberries and sliced jalapeños. Muddle.
  • Add in the bourbon, ice, and ginger beer. Stir. Top with additional ice if needed.
  • Garnish with a lime wheel, strawberry, and/or jalapeño slice.


*This will determine the spice level of your cocktail. Add more jalapeños for additional heat. Use fewer jalapeños and/or remove the seeds and inner pith for less heat.
