What's with the wimpy tastebuds in Colorado? When a server assures me that something is hot, I'm often disappointed to find it is neither hot nor tasty. So when a waiter tried to explain to me that the Bangkok Fizz, made with Thai chile-infused vodka was really, really hot, I pooh-poohed him and his East Coast tastebuds. But then I took a large swig, and felt the heat go down my throat and up my sinuses at the same time. He was correct: This is a damn hot drink. But it's delicious, and just the thing to warm you up on a cold winter day.
