A perfectly-prepared cocktail can be a great way to beat the heat this summer.  And Stephanie Elam got tips from a world-renowned bartender about the art of mixology and the top cocktails to try.

Fresh herbs are a great addition to the summer cocktail to add bold flavor without extra calories.  Just shake the herbs vigorously with the cocktail mixture, then strain them out.


Here is the complete Spicy Fifty recipe, if you're wanting to try it:
5cl Stolichnaya vanilla vodka
1.5cl elderflower cordial
1.5cl fresh lime juice
1cl honey syrup
2 thin slices of red chilli

Place all ingredients into a shaker filled with ice, shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a small red eye chilli on edge of the glass.
