I think these spiced mixed nuts are the perfect accompaniment to a great cocktail. That’s why I love to make them when I have company over, have a cocktail party or just to enjoy while having “cocktail hour” on the patio with my husband. These are always a hit at every party. The combination of sweet, savory and spicy really wows the pallet. This recipe can easily be tweaked by using your favorite nuts rather than the ones I uses (which are my favs). If you make this for your friends they will most certainly love it, so you should probably make a lot!

- 2 cup mixed nuts: cashews, almonds, walnuts, whatever you like
- 2 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 tablespoon butter
- 2 teaspoons Tabasco
- 5-6 sprigs rosemary, de-stemmed & chopped
- Flaky sea salt to taste
- Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the nuts and give them a couple minutes to begin toasting.
