Spice girl

Through a wacky series of events involving a drunken husband and a funnel, my nice bottle of tequila was accidentally spiked with Tabasco sauce. As probably too many of you know, I am easily charmed into taking tequila shots, so I was sort of sad that my tequila experience would now be a Russian Roulette game of spicy or not spicy, at least until we work our way through this bottle. Never one to be turned away from a bottle of alcohol, I have invented an awesome new drink that harnesses the power of the unpredictable spiciness: lemonade, tequila and an uncertain amount of Tabasco sauce. Its good with a little, its good with a lot, and its good with none. Now it just needs a good name...

I think I'd better try some so I will know if the name you come up with is sufficiently apt.

Mexican Roulette?

As in, "Can I pour you a Mexican Roulette?" Or, for a evening-long invitation, "Would you like to play some Mexican Roulette on Saturday night?"

I like it! If you come over with your sombrero on, I will make you a Mexican Roulette, Joolie. But I don't know how much longer this tequila will last now that I have discovered them...

I believe there was another drink that you guys invented a few months ago, but I can't remember the name. Do you?

I do remember that it was delicious!

Ah yes, that would be the Mayor Goes to Town, which is tequila mixed with Italian Soda (we've made it with Blood Orange, Pomegranate, Grapefruit, and Lemon). Although sometimes we make it with vodka instead of tequila, and that is equally delicious.

I think grapefruit soda and tequila is called a perro salado - spanish version of salty dog (i.e. made w/ tequila) but now as I say that it seems to be missing the salty part. hmmm...

my uninspired, OT suggestion was going to be Pease Porridge.
