  1. Using a funnel, pour vinegar into hot sauce bottle/container.
  2. Add powdered ingredients through the funnel, allowing them to fall into the vinegar.
  3. Add remaining water. Seal container and shake vigorously to combine ingredients.


This recipe yields around 225 mL (or so) of finished sauce. It'll require no refrigeration, since the ingredients used are non-perishable. Use a resealable container like a small mason jar or an old bottle from store-bought hot sauce.
