How spicy is sriracha mayo?

It is mildly spicy. You can adjust and add more sriracha or red pepper flakes to spice it up even more. Adding additional sriracha sauce will thin the mayo.

What is the difference between hot sauce and sriracha?

They are actually somewhat similar, but in addition to more garlic and sugar, sriracha also has significantly more chili! It’s also thicker than many traditional hot sauces.
