The Darby’s Spicy Dame cocktail was created to exude a modern opulence and style in cocktail mixology. It’s a fun, sexy and sophisticated recipe that combines muddled jalapeño peppers, mint, and cucumber with a homemade ginger syrup and ultra-premium Belvedere Intense Vodka. Served with a medium heat, the Spicy Dame can be prepared with a greater spice profile depending on a guest’s request. 

Ginger simple syrup is a cinch to make – simply combine one part water to two parts sugar, then grate a large chunk of peeled ginger root into the mix, allow to macerate for several hours or overnight, then strain through a fine sieve and refrigerate until needed.
