If you’ve ever thought, “mmm, you know what would cut this tequila shot? Hot sauce!” then this news is for you. Camarena Tequila has teamed up with fan-favorite Tapatío to create the first tequila and hot sauce flask, which is exactly what it sounds like.

While I’d argue that hot sauce is, in fact, a good tequila chaser (I’ve actually tried it as a spice fiend myself), the flask’s intended purpose is to top off your margs and tacos. To clarify, tequila is for the margs, and hot sauce is for the tacos.

“Both Camarena Tequila and Tapatío Hot Sauce began as family-owned companies with Mexican roots and have come together to honour their heritage and bring to life their passion for uniting loved ones over tacos and tequila,” a representative for the brands told Thrillist. The Hot Sauce Fiesta Flask isn’t for sale but instead available via giveaway for National Taco Day. Here’s how to snag yours. Like the post on Instagram, comment #FiestaFlask and #Sweeps below, and cross your fingers. The sweepstakes close on October 4.

“At Camarena Tequila, we’re always looking for ways to enhance the taco community either by honouring the stories of those behind the scenes or providing our drinkers with tools and delicious cocktails to match,” Spirit of Gallo Vice President Brandon Lieb told Thrillist. “Partnering with Tapatío Hot Sauce for the first-ever Fiesta Flask helps bring that to life, arming our shared fanbase with the two most pivotal taco pairings, tequila, and hot sauce, in a unique, innovative way.”

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
