Turn up the heat with the spicy bite of chile and the tangy flavor of passion fruit in this seductive potion. If passion fruit is in season, use fresh strained juice.


½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon chile powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ Key or Mexican lime
2 ounces fresh passion fruit juice or canned
Juice of ½ lime
½ ounce Cointreau
4 ounces brut cava


Combine the sugar, chile powder, and salt in a wide flat plastic container. Set aside.
Make a slit down the length of the Key lime and run it around the rim of a widemouthed glass, wetting it thoroughly. Press the rim of the glass into the chile-sugar mixture to coat the rim.

Combine the passion fruit juice, lime juice, and Cointreau in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until well chilled, and then carefully strain into the prepared glass.
Top with the brut cava wine.
