Tequila Surprise

The Tequila Surprise is just what it sounds like. Are you ready for the surprise? It’s tequila with – wait for it – 8 drops of hot sauce dropped down into it.

Tequila Surprise drink in cordial glass

The hot sauce goes straight to the bottom and clumps there, as you can see in the picture. This is definitely a shot for chugging, not savoring – unless you can take something like slightly watered down Tobasco swirling around in your mouth for a while. Admittedly, this drink is not for everybody!


Fill a shot glass with tequila. Add about 8 drops of Tobasco or any other hot sauce.
