CHILLI COCK­TAILS

GQ (Australia) - - FRONT PAGE -

GET SPICY WITH THE HOTTEST TREND IN BOOZE SINCE FLAM­ING B-52S, ONLY CLASSIER.

We love a win­ter whisky – an old­school nip of the dark stuff sees us through the cooler months with­out a prob­lem. But to re­ally turn up the heat, look no fur­ther than na­ture’s own ther­mal blan­ket: chilli pep­pers. As any­one who’s been overzeal­ous with the Sriracha knows, chilli de­liv­ers a knock­out punch – but in the right hands, its sub­tly sweet, smoky char­ac­ters also lend to a tasty tip­ple. “I love chilli,” says Aasha Sinha, bar man­ager at Syd­ney’s QT Ho­tel. “It’s an amaz­ing in­gre­di­ent and so ver­sa­tile – it re­ally brings this drink to life. The com­bi­na­tion of flavours dances on the tip of your tongue and keeps the palate guess­ing.” See for your­self – head to QT’S Gow­ings Bar & Grill and or­der the sig­na­ture Sao Paulo (pic­tured), then pop home and make your­self another. qtho­tels.com.au
