Cocktail Recipe: The Stumptown Smash
This recipe ran in our local newspaper, Willamette Week.
"Whiskey is also on the long list of things hot sauce goes well with. In fact, Hotmaple has already paired with Bulleit to make a limited edition hot sauce. Adding Bulleit to Hotmaple proved an exceptional hot sauce, and the reverse also works. Adding the signature Smokey Habanero sauce to Bulleit makes one hell of a spicy cocktail. A twist on a traditional whiskey smash, the lime and lemons in the Stumptown Smash brings out the citrus notes of the habaneros in the Portland-based hot sauce and maple syrup replaces the simple syrup in a whiskey smash. Rest assured: This drink will still put hair on your chest."
