Hot Sauce Gelees

A unique garnish for a cocktail!  Raise the bar when serving Bloody Mary’s and Micheladas.

Yield: About 50 small dices



  • 3 ounces Indian Pale Ale
  • 1 ounce hot sauce, of choice
  • .075 ounces powdered agar agar
  • 3 ounces sugar
  • Frame: 6” square plate lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap


In a small cooking pot add beer, and reduce by half.

Add powdered agar agar, sugar, and hot sauce and whisk together while bringing the mixture back up to a boil.

Boil gently for seven minutes stirring constantly.

Remove from heat, pour into the frame (6” square plate lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap) and allow to set until firm.

Sprinkle with granulated sugar and cut into squares using fishing twine or a guitar string. Toss in granulated sugar to coat.

Arrange in rows on a glazing rack to allow the gels to air-dry overnight then store in a dry area.
