    Tried it with 4 tsp jalapeno juice & 2 tsp hot sauce and also with 6 tsp jalapeno juice and 3 tsp hot sauce. Used horseradish in both. Thought the 4 tsp and 2 tsp combo had a good amount of spice so would use this. Can always add more hot sauce to taste! Also good if you use vodka instead of tequila and lemon juice instead of lime juice for a classic mary.
