Editor Laura McQuarrie Counts Down Her Favorite Spicy Hot Drink Recipes

 - Nov 21, 2014
As if alcohol didn't already have enough of a kick, increasingly people are leaning towards spicy hot drink recipes. Trend Hunter's Laura McQuarrie discusses her top picks for spiced libation. From boozy wizard cocktails to spiced watermelon sangrias and piquante citrus cocktails, your mouth will be burning in more ways than one.

When you hear 'wizard,' your mind likely jumps to The Boy Who Lived (also known as Harry Potter), but this Pims-containing cocktail was in fact inspired by Neville Longbottom. Sriracha is a popular ingredient in spicy hot drink recipes, such as watermelon-based sangrias and hot sauce cocktails. However, the Ancho y Tamarindo mixed drink also relies on a spiced liqueur that incorporates Mexican chilies.
