TIP OF THE DAY: Hot Sauce Ice Cream Cocktail Shake

Today’s tip concerns thinking outside the box.

Have you ever had ice cream and hot sauce? If it sounds strange, try this cocktail from El Jimador Tequila.

Ratchet up the heat on Cinco de Mayo with a “hot” ice cream cocktail.

The recipe includes ice cream, coffee liqueur, tequila, mango nectar and a few dashes of hot sauce. It’s an unlikely combination of ingredients that will delight your guests.

It uses reposado tequila, which is aged for at least six months until it mellows and achieves a light yellow hue. Aging takes the edge off and makes the tequila more compatible with ice cream.

This “hot ice cream shake” recipe will fill a large Martini glass. Have it for dessert with your choice of garnishes: chocolate shavings or a chocolate rim.


Ingredients Per Cocktail

  • 1-1/2 ounces El Jimador Reposado or other reposado tequila
  • 1/2 ounce Kahlua or other coffee liqueur
  • 1 ounce mango nectar
  • 3 dashes Tabasco or other hot sauce
  • 3 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • Garnish: chocolate shavings -or-
  • Garnish: ground chocolate wafers, ground chocolate or cocoa mix for rim


    1. PREPARE optional chocolate rim: Shave chocolate OR grind chocolate wafer cookies or chocolate shavings into a coarse powder OR use cocoa mix (with sugar). Place ground chocolate in a shallow bowl. If you’ve opted for chocolate shavings, reserve to sprinkle on the finished cocktail.

    2. DIP the rim of a Martini glass in a bowl of water 1/4 inch deep. Place the rim in the chocolate powder and twist to coat.

    3. PLACE all ingredients in a blender; blend until smooth and creamy.

    4. POUR into glass and garnish with chocolate shavings.
