Sounds like that would go very nicely with a mead! I'd definitely try it

The spice in the mead probably will not cool down, but the drink will probably smooth out over time. I'd recommend aging it quite a bit if you can help it. Make sure not to get any habanero chunks in it like the last guy did that'll spice it up ten times worse.

oh yeah it was sitting on the chunks for a month and that made it fire, so its not sitting on them anymore, and definitely wont be bottled with them

Im gonna use seeds and ribs and all so it will hopefully incorporate rather quickly.
If you want more of the flavor than heat, I'd remove the seeds and ribs. Depending on how long you leave the habanero in there, you can have a nice heat on the lips to a stronger heat.
