Guardians of the Galaxy: Rocket Raccoon

The Rocket Raccoon Cocktail
Get ready to guard the freakin' galaxy along side everyone's favorite anthropomorphic kleptomaniac raccoon, Rocket! It may be pint sized, but don't underestimate this Guardians of the Galaxy inspired cocktail! Spicy and tart with a secret sweetness, its dissident parts combine to make a fierce and unforgettable flavor. Prep your spicy simple syrup by slicing a jalapeño pepper into long strips after removing the seeds. Combine pepper, half an ounce of water and half an ounce of sugar in a sauce pan over high heat. Heat until simmering, quickly stir to dissolve all sugar. Once dissolved, remove from heat, remove jalapeño strips and let cool.

In a shaker with ice, combine jalapeño simple syrup, freshly squeezed orange juice and whiskey. Shake until very cold, strain into a rocks glass with ice, and garnish with an orange peel, not a cherry. Cherries just look a little too much like red buttons. In fact, just go ahead and put some tape over the cherry jar. ... Does anyone have any tape?

Ingredients:
4 oz blood orange juice
1 oz jalapeño simple syrup
2 oz whisky
Orange peel for garnish

Makes:
1 cocktail
