These recipes were inspired by Firefly co-founder Scott Newitt. Newitt comments, "I mixed these up last fall when I wanted to pour savory cocktails at my own tailgate parties. I like the versatility of serving them as shooters, martinis or high-balls. They are appealing to our fans who want spicier, more exotic cocktails, and like to experiment with mixing."
