I was thinking the same thing. It is little more than red vinegar as it is. If a person needs to dilute it they might as well just use plain vinegar with a few drops of red food coloring.

I don't know why you would want to, since Tabasco sauce is not very hot to me, but you could add some tomato sauce. I think that would blend right in, flavor-wise, and cut the heat plenty.

I think adding salt and vinegar would be safer than water, so it doesn't start to ferment. A teaspoon of vinegar and a pinch of salt mixed to make a tiny vinegar brine.

Have fun trying to get it down the little hole. I wanted to re-use the bottle for my own sauce once .....

Exactly. Tabasco isn't very hot. Why would someone want to calm it down???

Because some people can't take any heat at all? They are using Frank's for goodness sake.

When I lived in Mexico that was quite popular as a quick drink.

Advice appreciated !!
Why not just eliminate the Tabasco entirely from whatever recipe you are making?
