I've tried mixing mayonnaise and hot sauce together and it didn't taste right at all. Any Suggestions?

Japanese spicy mayo is made with Kewpie mayo and Shichimi tōgarashi. You really just mix them to taste.

How is Kewpie different than regular mayo? – user6591 Jan 15 at 2:49
The difference between Kewpi styled mayo and western is mainly whether egg whites are included. Check out the following: making japanese style mayo – Nate Mar 23 at 22:56

You can also use regular mayo and sriricha hot sauce. Ain't authentic, but it's a lot easier to come by, for the most part.

Japanese spicy mayo is "Kewpie" mixed with Sriracha. Kewpie and sriracha can be found at your local asian market...

Kewpie mayo and Shichimi. Sriracha has vinegar so it tastes different.

Not 'authentic', but I make it with mayo, chili oil, chili powder, crushed garlic, and honey. It's good on vegetables, too, especially cauliflower for some reason.

How about blending the mayo with wasabi powder? It will be different than the hot pepper heat but you'll taste it!

It's sriracha hot sauce mayo and sesame oil. That's it.
