Besos de Fuego, or Kisses of Fire, is not just a mediocre Ricky Martin song, but a delicious cocktail with a kick as well! Who’d have known?!
We recently visited our friends at Aloft in Boston to learn more about their cocktail named Besos de Fuego! We work with Aloft all of the time to mix the modern and fun of their hotel with the joy of Paint Nite. You can learn more about our partnership here!
On our visit, we watched their bartender, José, work his magic.
We were so impressed that we rushed home to try it ourselves!
For this cocktail, you will need:
- St. Germain
- Sparkling or still rosé
Step one: muddle!
First, muddle some watermelon, jalapeño, and citrus juice in a glass.
Step two: liquor
Next, add in two ounces of tequila per glass and one ounce of St. Germain per glass.
Step three: rosé
Now, shake or stir your mixture, add ice to your glass, and top with sparkling or still rosé!
Step four: garnish and enjoy
Finally, garnish your glass with watermelon, lime, and a pepper! Add a fun umbrella too!
This cocktail is spicy and refreshing all at the same time – perfect for your next summer party or day by the pool.
Cheers – happy sipping!
