Author Notes: The Lonestar Sweet & Spicy is a Texas-inspired cocktail that quenches your thirst during those long, hot summer days. This cocktail infuses Texas’s Hispanic Heritage with a tamarind simple syrup and jicama garnish, and just a smidge of cayenne pepper. Best served at a BBQ or Mexican Fiesta.Virginia Landry Hundley
