Voodoo Doctor Cocktail

Voodoo Doctor Cocktail for Halloween

Voodoo is said to have come from Africa, carried to America and the Caribbean in the days of enslavement. More specifically and more famously, the practice of voodoo magic has much of its roots in New Orleans, Louisiana. New Orleans is known for its ghost stories, voodoo doctors and its spicy food.

This Voodoo Cocktail offers a bit of mystery with spice.  I love the idea of coating the lime with the cayenne, the person drinking can decide if they want to plop it into the cocktail for a little more kick.

    I think the tablespoon of cayenne along with the 6 drops of hot sauce is incorrect and maybe a typo? I LOVE hot stuff, but, that seems like overkill to me. Is it correct?
