Dragons Blood Elixir Hot Sauce Review

Dragon’s Blood Elixir Hot Sauce was the first sauce from Chef Doug Crane of DragonsBloodElixir.com and it has become a staple on our pantry shelf.

Label: We love the old school “snake oil salesman” style of the label. It evokes the “Cure’s What Ails You” Wild West style labels.
The label even says “Guaranteed to Cure Bland Foods” and “Good For What Ails You”!

Chef Doug explains:

I found a rubber stamp of a fire breathing dragon at a tag sale, and the Dragon’s Blood Elixir name [and label] was coined.

Taste: out of the bottle, it is sweet, thanks to the apple ingredients, and then the slight heat of the peppers will fill your mouth and coat your lips. Don’t be alarmed reading this – Dragon’s Blood Elixir is NOT a very hot sauce. It is tangy, zingy (that’s a word, right?), and has a nice low level heat to it.

We love the sweetness of it, coupled with the mild heat of the peppers. If you could take your favorite Salsa, and bottle it with your favorite peppers, and make it pourable, you would come up with something like this sauce. Chef Doug has nailed that combination here in the Dragon’s Blood Elixir sauce.

Consistency: This sauce is just shy of being thin, with bits of peppers and seasonings. It’s delicious and goes fast, so order 2 or more!

Here, I’ve poured a dollop or two on pizza – awesome! My go-to on pizza has been Tabasco, or Frank’s, but there’s a new kid in town for us. We love this sauce.

All Natural Ingredients: Fire Roasted Salsa (tomatoes, jalapenos, onions, garlic, salt, citric acid), Apple Cider, Apple Cider Vinegar, Apple Puree, Red Savina and other Habanero Peppers, Balsamic Vinegar and Sea Salt

Overall Score: 4 out of 5
