If you’re a fan of a good Michelada, Boilermaker or Mule, you’ll likely appreciate the Hellfire cocktail, an easy-to-make cocktail at the intersection of all three. A combination of fresh lime juice, spiced rum, Tabasco sauce, ginger beer and pilsner, the Hellfire cocktail is crisp and refreshing with a slight hint of spiced sweetness, thanks to the rum, and a subtle kick courtesy of the Tabasco. If you prefer your heat level to be on the more intense side, play around with the hot sauce’s quantity, but do so with caution—you can always add more, but there’s no removing a liquid ingredient after it’s in the drink.
- Lime quarter
- 1 ounce spiced rum
- 2 dashes Tabasco sauce
- 1 ounce ginger beer
- Pilsner, chilled, to top
Squeeze the juice from the lime quarter into a pint glass.
Fill the glass with ice and add the rum, Tabasco and ginger beer.
Top with the pilsner and stir gently to combine.
