Nikki Heat
1 oz. Cognac
1 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. lemon juice
2 dashes Tabasco sauce

Mix all ingredients together in a shaker filled with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist.

Wow, this cocktail is a revelation. Simple to concoct and delectable before dinner, the Nikki Heat is a masterful melange of sweet, sour strong and spice. Don't be put off by the Tabasco, it accents this drink very nicely. A very good winter warmer.

Doug Winship, "I believe that an enduring drink name should be fun, lyrical, and evocative of its flavor profile. And some of the most famous are named after famous people or characters. The absinthe gives the Nikki Finn the appropriately poisonous vibe, but this drink, while still possessing the dangerous vibe, is much more friendly and spicy…."
