Sriracha Week At Rogue Spirits, The Armageddon

For the fourth day of Sriracha Week, Rogue Spirits brings you the full blown, total Sriracha immersion experience.

We start with the Armageddon Cocktail, made with our Spruce Gin, Dark Rum and Sriracha HOT Chili Sauce. Then we pair it with POP! Gourmet’s Sriracha Popcorn. Of course, if you’re going to have popcorn, you’ll want to watch a movie. Stay with us, we have some hot recommendations waiting for you.

First, the cocktail.

DIRECTIONS:

Combine ingredients into a shaker, shake, and serve over rocks. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Second, the popcorn. POP! Gourmet makes the only popcorn flavored with actual Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce. We had some flown in for a special assembly of the Rogue Spirits Tasting Panel. There’s no way we’d recommend something without trying it first.

The Rogue Spirits Tasting Panel met to evaluate Sriracha flavored popcorn from POP! Gourmet.

The experts determined that the pairing of popcorn, Rogue Spirits and Rogue Sriracha HOT Stout was pleasing to the palate.

Our final challenge was finding the right movies to make the experience complete. We figured the only thing hotter than Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce is lava. Here in the Pacific Northwest we know a thing or two about volcanos that actually erupt.

Talk about kismet. The two best movies about volcanos were released within a few months of each other in the spring of 1997. Dante’s Peak and the generically named Volcano, are rated the 8th and 11th best movies about natural disasters according to experts on the internet, and both are available for streaming. Your night is now complete.

On each day of Sriracha Week, we’ll post a recipe that includes either Rogue Ales Sriracha HOT Stout, or Sriracha Hot Sauce, along with one of our Rogue Spirits whiskeys and vodkas. Come back tomorrow for a new one, or post a recipe of your own on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook using the #SrirachaWeek hashtag.
