The STOOP SAUCE - RED LABEL & BLACK LABEL sauces have been sitting all by their lonesome on our website & social media pages for the past year and a half, but I can happily say that this will soon change! During the fall of last year, development of a BRAND NEW sauce began that will become our next Artisan Hot Sauce to join the STOOP SAUCE lineup, and will be an instant favorite for those fortunate enough to obtain. Let's go ahead and talk about the upcoming STOOP SAUCE - GREEN LABEL!
Inspired by a summer filled with warm days, loud concerts, and a seemingly endless supply of margaritas, our GREEN LABEL sauce is a tangy, sweet & spicy filled adventure in a bottle! Packed with A LOT of freshly squeezed Limes (my hands STILL hurt), Jalapeno Peppers, Agave Nectar, and an ENTIRE bottle of Tequila in every batch, this Artisan Hot Sauce/Margarita hybrid is sure to bring the party to anything your heart and your cravings desire! Seriously, I cannot recommend this sauce enough on tacos or a hot fresh slice of pizza!
While it was easy enough to imagine this idea prior to development, getting the balance of this one was definitely a challenge to say the least. My first ever attempt at this sauce was, well, a bit of a mess. Let's just say I made a pretty critical error that transformed an entire 2 gallons of potential spicy genius into an inedible mess that even the garbage couldn't handle. The second batch, on the other hand, was a completely different story. An elegant ballet of flavors ran over my tongue; the bright tangy limes, sweet sugary agave, and the flavorful bite of tequila. It was the start of something bold, new, and exciting; for myself as a hot sauce chef, and for the future of STOOP SAUCE! Twice a week, on my way home from work, I would make a trip to the grocery store, the liquor store, and then head straight to my kitchen once I was home to make a new test batch, improving on the GREEN LABEL with each and every cook. This went on for about a few months to ultimately achieve a perfect fresh & authentic margarita flavor!
Like the rest of the STOOP SAUCE lineup, the GREEN LABEL sauce is made using all natural, whole ingredients, locally sourced produce, and all natural peppers with a TWIST of Tequila! In the end, I can easily say we've given life to the most perfect Margarita Hot Sauce that was ever made, guaranteed.
Unfortunately, there is no official release date planned for the STOOP SAUCE - GREEN LABEL as of yet, but if you keep on the lookout, you may be surprised by its release soon enough! You'll definitely be informed of its upcoming release if you join our mailing list, so go ahead and do so!
Oh, and one last thing, it has a HINT of Carolina Reaper as well!
