There isn't much else to know about the Mexican Candy shot recipe, although Foodbeast has included it
in one of its "Worst Shots Ever" YouTube videos. What people really get hung up on is the addition of hot sauce, but if you love spicy drinks, you'll probably like these beautiful little tequila shooters.

1 oz. (30ml) Watermelon Pucker
2 Dashes of Hot Sauce
1. Combine tequila, watermelon pucker, and hot sauce in a shaker with ice. Shake well.
2. Strain mix into a small glass or shot glass.
