Spicy Pineapple Lime Spritzer

I recently moved into a new apartment and my new roommate dude has been experimenting with lots of craft cocktails. I, on the other hand, have been experimenting with craft mocktails (although I have not been shying away from taste testing his wonderful creations). This one is the best yet. Its summery and fresh and tingly and perfect. The bubbles in the water and the kick of the cayenne make it outstanding. Safe enough for a kid but made for an adult. And look, you didn't hear this from me, but adding a splash of tequila won't ruin it.

1 cup pineapple juice
1 or two juicy lime, juiced
1 pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 cup seltzer water

In a cocktail shaker add the pineapple juice, lime juice, and cayenne pepper. Shake vigorously and taste to spiciness (you want it to have a bit of a kick, so if it doesn't, add a bit more cayenne and shake again). Pour over 2 glasses with lots of ice and top with seltzer water. Drink and enjoy.
