Sriracha is in trouble.
First, a judge ruled that Huy Fong Food’s Southern California Sriracha plant must shut down due to neighbor’s complaints that the smell caused headaches. Then, Dining Services implemented a rule barring the usage of spicy with sauces on anything but spicy withs. Say goodbye to your divine 1:30 a.m. Sriracha and fries.
But, just when we thought all was lost, in swoops Phillips Distilling Company to save the day. This
insane and delusional genius company decided enough was enough. Someone needed to combine college students’ two favorite liquids. Introducing…UV Sriracha Vodka.
The visionary director of research and development at Phillips, Jim Aune, describes the best pair since peanut and jelly as a “blend of chili peppers, garlic and vegetables.” Sounds like the perfect pre-hook up drink to me! While everyone is probably dying to drink that enticing blend straight, Aune suggests adding it to a bloody mary or any other savory drink.
Phillips has always been at the forefront of the flavored vodka game. They were one of the first companies to embrace dessert flavored vodkas–although some would argue that even cotton candy is more compatible with vodka than hot sauce. But, Aune seems pretty serious about this concoction, claiming it stays true to its roots.
“Sriracha connoisseurs will love the bold, bright chili, complimented by a sweetness that finishes green,” he said. This is serious business.
So, Sriracha connoisseurs and plebs alike, snatch this one-of-a-kind product up before it’s
discontinued sold out! Suggested retail price is $12.99 for a one liter bottle. And even though you can’t have Sriracha with your onion rings, no one said you can’t bring a handy 50ml bottle (for only 99 cents!) to Jo’s and smother your spicy with with vodka. Yum.
