Fireworks Caesar

For those who like their Caesar extra spicy

Add some fireworks to your everyday with this scorching Caesar made with spicy spirit, tequila, that’s then topped with garlic, jalapeño—remove the seeds if you want to keep the heat down, or leave them in and fire it up—and green onion. 

To up the ante on the spice in this Caesar, use a chili pepper–infused spirit in place of the tequila.
