The Perfect Martini For Those Who Like a Little Heat

A martini is such a classic drink, making it a base for so many different flavor combinations. If you love extrahot sauce on whatever you're eating, shake up this spin on the cocktail that has a touch of sneaky heat. The chocolate-drizzled peppers can be dropped in the drink for a slow burn or used as a rim garnish, allowing you to control the right amount of spice.
