Review: Sauza Tequila Hot Sauce

Posted by Rick M on Sep 8th 2010

Producer: Vita Specialty Food 

Price: 5oz: ~$3.89 

Ingredients: Distilled vinegar, water, spices, lemon juice (water, lemon juice concentrate), natural and artificial flavors, Sauza Tequila, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate 

Appearance: Reddish brown, thin consistency 

Aroma: Tequila is at the forefront, with a backing of vinegar and pepper

Taste: Right out of the gate there is no mistaking that this sauce contains Tequila. The vinegar then makes an entrance, followed by a punch of heat that was unexpected. While the heat is not over the top, it was certainly more than expected from this sauce, and while it quickly diminishes, it does leave you with a prolonged, soft heat.

Heat: Hot (5).

Conclusion/General Comments: Sauza Tequila Hot Sauce is a fine sauce for those who like the taste of Tequila, and gives a very unique flavor as a result.
