Instructions

In the extreme Southwest [Tucson – 90 miles from the Mexican border] we use a number of different hot sauces [from Mexico, not Tucson, depending on the part of town the drink is served in]. it’s imPortant to use the local hot sauce in your area, which your patrons are familiar with, so that a local ‘customized’ version of this popular drink can be bragged about. By not Mixing the drink after the addition of the hot sauce, the sauce’s peculiar/unique flavor is immediately ‘recognized’ by the consumer’s tongue, then ‘satisfied’ with the cool balance of the rest of the liquor. For the ‘Perfectly- Sneaky Snake Bite’, eliminate the Ice and serve in a SMALL or MINIATURE Whiskey glass or Shot Glass, frosty-fresh from the freezer. You won’t blend a better cool-shot in the summertime and your customers will find themselves hanGing around the bar for more, long after they’d intended. The problem with this scenario? it’s hard to keep that many small Whiskey glasses in the freezer for thirsty patrons. This drink is a favorite of our local and ‘just-passing-through’ Harley groups on I-10, or other motorcyclists, who want a ‘cool-throat’ or two, then move on down the road. Our locals drink it by the Beer schooner with a MOrange Juiceave Rattler wrapped around their head-band… JAYsus. Of course, neither Doc Holliday, the ‘Cowboys’ nor the Earp brothers ventured into a Tombstone saloon for very long before cowering to the mighty ‘Snake Bike.’ It was popular even then.Pour ‘Jack over nine MINIATURE Ice Cubes (two, regular) in a small Old Fashioned Glass; add Rose’s Sweetened Lime Juice at 6-8. height above the glass to Mix; then your local hot sauce also ‘at height’ (4-5. ” above the glass). The exact proPortion of Yukon to Roses by volume is recommended. But Hell when it’s hot and the customer’s thirsty?…”
