White Balsamic Hot Sauce

Updated on July 20, 2015


  • 120 mL (24 tsp) White Balsamic Vinegar
  • 10 tsp Ground Cayenne Powder
  • 1 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Cumin

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Ready in: 5 min
Yields: Approximately 5.5 fl oz

Seriously, it shouldn't take more than a couple minutes to combine all the ingredients.

Richness of Flavor

The use of white balsamic vinegar creates a sweeter base, enhanced only by the distinctive spicy-sweet flavor of cumin. The end result is a very warm and aromatic sauce with a nearly velvety texture.

Occasionally, someone asks if a substitution of white vinegar is acceptable for this recipe. Frankly, I wouldn't do it... White vinegar doesn't have the sweetness as the white balsamic does, so the flavor will be entirely different. If white vinegar is all you have laying around, try this Basic Hot Sauce instead.

  1. Add approximately half (60 mL) of the vinegar to your container.
  2. Add all powdered ingredients to container.
  3. Top off with other half of the vinegar.
  4. Cap the container and shake to combine all ingredients.


This recipe yields around 5.5 oz 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. And it might not hurt to have a funnel handy.
