My Mouth is Burning - July 23, 2008

A new drink is about to hit town and take over our taste buds, forcing them to tingle in delight. It's called Prometheus Springs, and it's a Capsaicin infused elixir. What is Capsaicin you might ask, well, it's a superfood antioxidant that makes peppers so deliciously spicy. Prometheus Springs will derive its capsaicin from scotch bonnet peppers, and to give you an idea of how spicy they'll be here's a comparioson. Most scotch bonnets have a heat rating of 100,000 to 350,000 Scovile Units, jalapenos, however, only have a heat rating of 2,500 to 8,000 on the Scoville scale.

A friend of a friend is in the midst of taking America by storm with Prometheus Springs, which will hopefully happen sooner than later, as I'm really looking forward to trying this.

Of course the drink isn't all about spice, it's got fresh citrus extracts and cold-pressed ginger added in it as well. The website has a fantastic section about the types of drinks I can look forward to drinking with Prometheus Springs. I'm particularly looking forward to this one:
