You Spice Up My Life: Hot Drinks - Liquid Fire

S&B - Nanami Togarashi (Assorted Chili Pepper) 0.52 Oz.
Liquid Fire is a drink I came up with a couple of summers ago, when the power went out in much of North America, and I wanted to light things up a bit. It's really just a variation of an
old drink, but, as Chef Emeril Lagasse is fond of saying, I kicked it up several notches. This version is non-alcoholic, but feel free to add a splash of vodka or gin if you feel like it. You can also replace the soda water with ice cubes.

Ingredients + Preparation

  • 3/4 glass tomato juice, garden cocktail or a similar drink.
  • 1/4 tsp Nanami Togarashi - A Japanese style of mixed of different dried red peppers - more savoury-salty than truly hot. Hard to find even in Japanese/Korean grocery stores.
  • 1/2 tsp Sriracha - Ultra-hot, vinegary but thick, smooth red sauce available in Oriental markets and sometimes in the international section of large supermarkets.
  • Black pepper (best if freshly ground) and salt to taste.
  • Add a splash of soda water, if desired.
  • 1 Celery stalk or long sliver of cucumber to stir drink with.
  • Vodka or gin optional.
