I used a brand of horseradish I have never used before. It wasn't as hot as I like. So tread carefully and add a little bit at a time and taste until you get a hot enough flavor. Keep in mind that after it chills the horseradish will have had time to blend with the other ingredients and reach it's full flavor.
