Spicy Citrus Cocktail Peanuts Recipe



Yield: 3 servings
Time Estimate: 5 minutes overall, including 5 minutes of preparation
Storage Notes: serve immediately; keeps for 1 days when covered
Difficulty: easy

With cocktail hour at home increasingly featuring craft beers and elaborate mixed drinks, we figured it was time for the humble cocktail peanut to step it up a notch. Taking our inspiration from the twists and garnishes of our favorite cocktails, we use lemon and lime rinds, plus our Red Cayenne Salt to transform ordinary cocktail peanuts into something phenomenal. Try it - you will like it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lime
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 tablespoons Gustus Vitae Condiments' Red Cayenne Salt
  • 2 cups peanuts


Method: 

  1. Peel the lemon and lime as you would an apple or potato, taking care not to get too much of the flesh.
  2. In separate piles, finely chop the lime and lemon rinds. 
  3. Arrange a serving plate with salt, rinds, and peanuts. Serve.
