We love spicy food and especially like spicy bloody marys. Spicy is a journey through sensations of heat, an experiment, and sometimes if hot enough, a high. If you have a selection of hot sauces and you’ve seen Hot Ones on Youtube then you know what we’re talking about. Hot sauce is not optional, it’s mandatory. We have a display of 18 different hot sauces and are always getting new ones either from local farmers' markets or from our travels. A spicy bloody mary is easily made with a flick of the wrist wielding Tabasco, but we’re headed in a different, a more exotic hot sauce bloody mary direction. Keep reading to find out how to make the best spicy bloody marys.
Here are the top 3 hot sauces you have to try when creating your next spicy bloody mary or spicy bloody maria.

El Yucateco Green Chile Habanero Hot Sauce uses a blend of fresh green habanero peppers, garlic, spices, and seasonings. It’s a bright spicy and tangy flavor that has a similar flavor to the green jalapeno but is much spicier. This is not a hot sauce for the faint of heart. It is what we like to call a sleeper, throwing you off the spicy trail with its tangy complex flavor and then building heat until you are frantically looking for your glass of water. You’ll go back for more every time because it’s so delicious and you’re a glutton for punishment by hot sauce. Start slowly with just a few drops in your bloody mary and increase the hot sauce to your level of taste.
