It’s a very simple variation on a spicy martini recipe I’ve made before.
The recipe is as follows:
1 part sweet vermouth (or to taste)
4-6 drops of Tabasco (or to taste – I like it very spicy)
2-3 drops of hot sauce (or to taste)
4-5 parts chilled gin or vodka (I used vodka this time but this works with either)
3 pimenta biquinhos em conserva
Pour the vermouth, the hot sauce and tabasco into a martini glass and stir. Add the gin or vodka and stir again, then garnish with the pickled peppers on a toothpick or skewer.
It’s good for whetting your appetite before a meal, if you can actually finish it.
