This recipe was created by chef Paul Prudhomme who placed a chopped jalapeno pepper into a bottle of gin for 12 hours to infuse. The result of his endeavor is this classic martini cocktail with quite a spicy kick.


  • 2-1/2 ounces gin infused for 12 hours with a chopped jalapeno pepper
  • 1/4 ounce dry vermouth
  • Ice
  • 1 red jalapeno pepper to garnish


  1. Place a martini glass into the freezer for 5 minutes to chill.
  2. Put the jalapeno-infused gin and the vermouth in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice, and stir or shake the mixture for 30 seconds until chilled.
  3. Strain the mixture into the prepared glass, garnish with the jalapeno pepper and serve immediately.
