The Sugar and Spice cocktail from Sukoshi is delicious. I would love to make it at home. Can you please get the recipe? — Jamila Jones, Stone Mountain

Sukoshi was happy to adapt this recipe for us. At the restaurant, it's served out of a slushie machine so here they've adapted it so you can prepare it in your home blender. At their sister restaurant, O-Ku, it's mixed as a cocktail and served on the rocks.

We bought our passion fruit puree online, but readers tell us it can be found at the Buford Highway Farmers Market in the Hispanic frozen foods section and at Your DeKalb Farmers Market in the frozen foods section.

Sukoshi’s Sugar N’ Spice

To make habanero-infused vodka, add half a habanero to about 4 cups of vodka and let it sit for 24 hours. If you like it extra spicy, the restaurant suggests you add the whole pepper.

Make simple syrup by combining 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup granulated sugar and heating until sugar dissolves. Cool before using. Any extra simple syrup may be refrigerated for up to two weeks.

Sukoshi’s Sugar N’ Spice
  • 6 ounces habanero-infused vodka
  • 4 ounces passionfruit puree
  • 2 ounces fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ounces simple syrup
  • 2 cups ice
  • In the jar of a blender, combine vodka, passionfruit puree, lemon juice and simple syrup. Blend briefly, then add ice and process until smooth. Serves: 4
