How to Use A&B American Style Pepper Sauce: The March Hare (a drink)

Update: Check out the beautiful new photography and recipe

Another recipe. This time for a drink.

Here’s what’s been happening. You guys hear that we make a product from chili peppers (the Red Fresno) and assume that there should be a special bloody mary drink with it.

Go for that, if you want. But we’ve got something even better.

We know when you traditionally drink your bloody mary. It’s a beautiful, sunny weekend morning. You’re in pain. You take a look out the window and the sun hurts your eyes. You crawl back into bed for another 15 minutes.

Finally, you get yourself up. You’re tired of the same tomato and worcestershire flavor every week. We’ve got you covered.

The March Hare. It’s a brilliant new drink that will get you up and out.

Recipe: The March Hare
Ingredients:

  • Carrot Juice
  • Orange Juice
  • Fresh Ginger, peeled, grated (don't lose the juice)
  • Lemon Juice
  • A&B American Style Pepper Sauce
  • Vodka
  • Parsley or Celery, for garnish

Directions:
  1. Take carrot juice, orange juice and put in the fresh ginger. Hopefully, you did this last night because the flavors come together much better when they have time to hang out
  2. Squeeze in some fresh lemon juice
  3. Add a healthy pour of A&B American Style Pepper Sauce
  4. Add an unhealthy pour of Vodka
  5. Garnish with something fresh and bitter (Parsley or Celery)
  6. Drink
  7. Feel replenished as the carrot and ginger rebuild your body while the A&B American Style wakes you up and the lemon juice brings it all together
  8. Chew on the garnish in your slightly improved state
  9. Repeat steps 6-8 until the glass is empty
  10. Once the glass is empty, repeat steps 1-10, because you underestimated how good that was and you should certainly have one more

The American Style thing to do is try something new. Give it a shot next weekend and let us know how it goes.

Got a better idea for A&B American Style? Share it in the comments. If we post it, we’ll give you a free bottle of A&B American Style Pepper Sauce.

How to use A&B American Style Pepper Sauce: Oysters

People have been asking us how to use A&B American Style Pepper Sauce. We think our Pepper Sauce is good on everything, but to date, we’ve given you very little guidance about ways to use it that are truly great.
Our first suggested pairing is the simplest recipe we can think of: Oysters & A&B American Style Pepper Sauce
Oysters are really, really delicious. Everyone knows that. They have a great natural flavor, which makes them a perfect partner for A&B American Style. We find that it’s impossible to eat less than a dozen. No matter where we sit with a platter of oysters, we find ourselves as relaxed as if we were sitting seaside. Served in the shell, we love them raw, grilled, baked, steamed or however you want to give them to us. (We like them fried in a po’ boy too, but that’s another recipe).

To make oysters even better, we add a splash of A&B American Style Pepper Sauce right on there. Our recipe has a fresh, bright and slightly acidic taste that pairs so well with the creaminess of oysters. So adding some of our Pepper Sauce brings a wonderful sweet, tangy kick to the briny deliciousness of the oyster with just the right amount of heat.

Recipe: Oysters and A&B American Style Pepper Sauce
Ingredients: Oysters, A&B American Style Pepper Sauce
Directions
  1. Open oysters (optionally cook them a bit before)
  2. Add a splash of A&B American Style Pepper Sauce
  3. Slurp it down
  4. Notice the aromatic flavor of our Pepper Sauce and how it complements the salinity of the oyster
  5. Marvel at the uniqueness of the flavor combination you just enjoyed
  6. Wonder how you lived this long without it

Use A&B American Style to replace your mignonette, your cocktail sauce, your horseradish and, especially, your boring hot sauce and let us know how it goes!
