The Firebird

This is a cocktail made for my brother who likes things spicy but also in honour of my Mother who had a Solar Gold '79 Pontiac Firebird all the years I lived with her.

Created: Spring of 2013

Served: On the rocks.

 3 oz. Rum
 1 1/2 oz. Tawny Port
 3 dashes Orange Bitters
 1 dash Angostura Bitters
 3 thin slices of HabeƱero Pepper

 Muddle Pepper slices in both measures of bitters. Add ice cubes, Rum, and Port. Stir vigorously and serve.

 Named for the color, spice, and in honour of my Mother who insisted she couldn't like a spicy cocktail. Good news, she did!
