A little Sriracha never hurt anyone right? Sexy and Spicy cocktails seem to be Hot, Hot, Hot, this summer and will also keep you warm throughout the fall and winter months! This one puts a spin on a fun Moscow Mule… and is more like a Mezcal Mule that pairs nicely with sweet, salty, and creamy foods.
