Naga Chilli Vodka

Here’s one way to curb a drinking problem: Infuse your vodka with the hottest chilli pepper on the planet. Measuring 100,000 on the Scoville scale (jalapenos are about 5,000, for example), the Naga Jolokia pepper is the wicked bastard that’s blended with vodka in the Naga Chilli Vodka ($50), Master of Malt’s latest deathtrap of a drink. Each Scoville unit denotes how many times the chilli must be diluted by its own mass of water until the heat is only just detectable, so at 100,000, um, yeah, prepare to drink a lake. They even warn against drinking this as a shot, urging you to just throw a splash into a cocktail or maybe onto a bonfire that’s about to fade out.
