Country Cocktail Recipe: A Spicy Secret

This week, Mama June is keeping a pretty big secret from everyone and it’s only a matter of time until the truth comes out. Until then WE are sipping on this Spicy Secret!

serves 8-10


5 Blood Oranges
4 oz. Tequila
2 oz. Spicy Honey Syrup
2 12 oz. cans of Blood Orange Cider


1 Cup Honey
3 Dried Chipotle Peppers
6 Dried Chile de Àrbol Peppers
¼ Cup Water


Roughly chop the dried peppers and add to honey in a small pot. On low heat, bring honey and pepper mixture to a simmer then turn off heat. Let cool for up to an hour. Add water, slowly mixing until fully incorporated with the honey and peppers. Pour honey through a strainer and refrigerate.


Juice the oranges to get 1½ cups (optional: strain to remove pulp). Add tequila and the spicy honey syrup, mix well. Fill a highball glass with ice and pour up to half the glass with juice mixture and top off with ½ can of the blood orange cider.

The secret’s out, and it sure is spicy! Watch Mama June: From Not to Hot Fridays at 9|8c and follow WE tv on Instagram and Snapchat to get all of Mama June’s Country Cocktails recipes!
