Bella Pepper Cocktail

Sweet & Savory

This cocktail features red bell pepper, lemon, and hot honey. The Noir Lava Salt adds the perfect balance of flavor and color - garnished with fresh basil and a lime wheel.

This is Bella Pepper cocktail is a salute to bell peppers because they don’t get the credit they deserve. 1 cup of red bell pepper has 3 times as much vitamin C as an orange, so this cocktail is pretty healthy 😉
