Unless you’ve been living in a cave the past three years, chances are you have become familiar with those little bottles of red sauce with the infamous green cap popping up on every restaurant table and supermarket shelf around. Yes, we’re talking about Sriracha! By now you know that sriracha goes well with pretty much anything. Seriously, just do a quick Internet search for meals made with sriracha and you will be scrolling for hours. Or you could just take our word for it. Sriracha has recently hit a spike in popularity with Huy Fong Foods, Inc. producing and selling the largest amount of the hot sauce. Also known as “Rooster Sauce” because of its interesting logo on the bottle, sriracha has joined the ranks of ketchup and mustard as a kitchen necessity.
Therefore, it only makes sense that it has a week-long celebration in honor of it right? You guessed it, March 7th marked the beginning of Sriracha Week! We felt it was appropriate to honor our favorite new condiment with its very own Whiskey Wednesday. So, here it is people: the Sriracha Hot Toddy! Or is it a Hot Bloody? Or a Toddy Mary?
2 oz. Lost Republic whiskey
1 cup water
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon sriracha
First, bring the cup of water to a boil in a small pan. Stir together the sriracha, lemon juice, honey, and whiskey. Then add the mixture to the pan, turn the heat down, and let it simmer for 7-10 minutes. Cheers, Pioneers!
