A Touch of Tabasco is a 1959 studio album by the American jazz singer Rosemary Clooney and the Cuban band leader Perez Prado.

This was the only album that Clooney and Prado recorded together; the album was promoted with bottles of Tabasco sauce.[2]

The album was Clooney's second for her new label, RCA Victor, following her departure from Columbia Records. Her first RCA Victor album was Fancy Meeting You Here with duets with Bing Crosby. The liner notes were contributed by Clooney's husband, the actor José Ferrer.[3]
