Absolute Délice

This is a popular cocktail recipe within my family. Hubby developed this recipe when he was a bachelor. Since then it has become a favorite of him and his friends. When I tasted this for the first time I can remember it was my first year of marriage. That was a lazy winter evening. He made me drink this by saying (he was convincing me rather), “just take one sip you wouldn’t regret, this is not bitter trust me”. Well, I don’t like the bitter taste of alcohol, till now I’ve avoided many liquor varieties just for the bitter taste. Bitter things are not for me.

The Punch of Green chili, the flavor and its taste when combined with Vodka and lemonade makes a marriage made into heaven. That kick from Green chili will tantalize your taste buds for sure and will make you to drink more! 😉 You must try this if you’re a cocktail lover. Here is how we make it.
