You can serve this room temperature, rather than chilled. It tastes mildly of honey, but isn’t too sweet, and finishes off with a pretty serious chile burn–there are three dried red chiles floating in the bottom of the bottle. It’ll warm you up, and might even cure a cold. It would also be a good punch mixer.
Nemiroff Honey Pepper Vodka is available at Astor Wines for $16.99.
