If there are three ingredients that are made for each other, it's Mezcal, Chartreuse and Pineapple. And I'm talking Holy Trinity Heavenly Delight here, not just 'om nom nom' (for those who were gonna say 'Gin, Campari and Sweet Vermouth', you get half a point and A for effort). For today's drink I mixed the three aforementioned ingredients with lime juice and added some serious heat, not for the faint of heart.
To create this mad libation, I used Tabasco's brand new 'Scorpion Sauce', of which I received a sample in the mail. This '150th birthday celebratory edition' is 20(!) times hotter than the regular @Tabasco, kicking your face numb in the best way possible, with a blend of scorching Scorpion peppers supported by Guava and Pineapple, to keep it palatable.️ Seriously, this drink was like a Mexican standoff between fire and ice, heaven and hell, light and darkness. Sweeping my tastebuds from one side of my mouth to the other, like they were in a Lucha Libre fight... But it was SO GOOD. If you like it hot, this one's for you! Cheers to the weekend, Drinkstagram!
