Prairie Fire Shot: The Tequila Tabasco Mix

Like a brush fire in your belly…

Don’t say we didn’t warn you. The Prairie Fire shot is one of those classic “I dare you” shooters. While Tabasco peppers have a significant medium punch, Tabasco hot sauce itself isn’t anywhere near as hot. But it’s the speed of the hot sauce intake along with the esophagus-coating warmth of the tequila that both ignite to light a brush fire in your belly. In fact, your entire core will burn.

The Prairie Fire tequila-Tabasco mix, in fact, makes many “disgusting shot” top-ten lists, but, of course, for some, that makes them want to try it even more. This is one shooter that you’re sure to remember.
