Fellow bicycle blogger and all-around cool guy Jimmy from 2Drunk2Shift announced a few weeks back that his homemade hot sauce was ready for shipping. Seeing as how I like spicy foods and collect hot sauces, I figured I’d give it a try. $7.00 (including shipping) later, I had a bottle at my door.
This sauce is made with habanero peppers…so it packs a good bit of firepower. It’s not overwhelming, though, because the spicy peppers are blended with roasted red peppers, carrots and peaches. This combination gives the sauce a complex flavor, with sweet undertones and savory notes. In short, this sauce is YUMMY! The heat grows gradually as you eat, leaving you with a tingly, peaceful sensation after all is done. That’s the way a good hot sauce should behave…
I’ve tried Speedy’s #44 on scrambled eggs, burritos, grilled chicken and a bunch of other foods. It’s that good — my only recommendations are to buy more than one bottle…and remove that silly shaker cap so you can really pour the sauce on!
Besides all that, the label has some amazing bicycle-related artwork on it…could there be another tattoo in my future?
Jimmy’s got mad sauce-making skillz…so if you’re in the mood for some spice in your life, drop him a line and he’ll send a bottle or three out to you.
Did I mention that I like hot sauce?
