RECIPE

Voodoo Death Spell

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

This fiery hot tiki-inspired libation features Torchbearer Sauces’ The Rapture 2.0, a hot sauce made with the Trinidadian scorpion pepper. If you’re unfamiliar with this lethal pepper, its tip resembles a scorpion’s stinger (hence the name) and it clocks in at 1.2 million Scoville heat units—that’s about 600 times hotter than a jalapeño. According to Torchbearer Sauces, each bottle of their Rapture hot sauce contains the equivalent of 16 whole scorpion peppers. The only thing that lies between you and the flaming hot wrath of the pepper is a touch of citrus, a pour of rum and creamy carrot juice.
