A drink named for and including the hottest pepper, the Scotch Bonnet will certainly awaken your taste buds. Extra spicy and delicious, with a crisp, sweet flavor. Keep some starchy food nearby if it’s too hot. Eating potatoes or bread ease the capiscum from the palate, while water only makes it more intense.
