A Spicy Summer Soiree, Featuring Our Pappy Pepper Sauce


After the first tasting with our friends at Midland Ghost, we knew our exclusive hot sauce would be a hit. Our  Bourbon Barrel-aged Pepper Sauce is crafted with their infamous, locally grown, first-generation ghost peppers and then aged in Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels for a rich, smoky, oaky heat.

It’s with this southern staple in mind that Libbie Summers returns with another batch of her scrumptious recipes. This time it’s a spicy summer soiree, featuring our Pappy Pepper Sauce. Libbie is artistic director of her own lifestyle brand, “A Food-Inspired Life,” and in our opinion, mixes up the most delightful Pappy Mary cocktail. So, go beyond the grill and discover all of the culinary fun you can have with our hot sauce. Watch the video, and try our recipes below. Party on!
