Spiced Ice Tea

A flash infusion of orange-spiked tea and hot peppers adds heat and bright flavor in a hurry.

1 teabag  (Constant Comment, or other orange-flavored black tea recommended)
3 ounces Stoli orange-flavored vodka
1 ounce simple syrup
Thai chili or serrano pepper, sliced
One whole pepper, for garnish

Immerse the tea bag in hot water for 10 seconds, then remove it and immerse it in the vodka. Allow to steep for 5 minutes. During the last minute, add the chili pepper. Remove the tea bag before proceeding with the next steps.

In a shaker filled with ice, shake infused vodka. Strain into cocktail glass and garnish with a whole pepper.
