From saucy shows to saucy eats — Redd does it all

Although this is Redd's first foray into food distribution, she said she has always enjoyed experimenting in the kitchen.

"Such as, I always eat guacamole and doctor it and make it my own. And the creation of this sauce goes with the way I cook. When I make salsa, I put jalapeños in it. So, when we saw that post on Facebook, we thought that marketing our own sauce would be a fun thing as I'm not your average entertainer," said Redd, who admits she enjoys keeping them guessing.

 Redd's Hot & Saucy is basically a hot sauce and very versatile, she said, and can be used for items such as oysters.

"It's made with total natural ingredients," said Redd. "Key lime makes it tangy, but not vinegary. I even use it on salad. A dash makes it bright, but not overwhelming."

Redd said even though the sauce was just recently christened, she has been making and working on it for a couple of years, and plans are already cooking for a sweet sauce, a spicy version and a chunky variety.

Redd's Hot & Saucy is available from her and wherever she performs: Marie's Bistro in Blue Mountain Beach, Buddha Lounge at Sally's, Enzo's, and Nick's on the Beach for $7.99.

The Vizards moved to Santa Rosa Beach in 2007 from Key West , where she performed as a singing bartender at Aqua nightclub. She recreated the singing bartender role in 2008 at Sally's Backside in Blue Mountain Beach when it opened.
