Store pickles in refrigerator up to four weeks. (We doubt they'll last that long.)
Drain liquid from jar; remove pickles from jar. Rinse pickles with water, and drain.
Layer half each of pickles, sugar, garlic, and hot sauce in jar. Press down gently. Repeat layers. Twist on lid to seal; invert jar, and shake 2 to 3 times to combine ingredients. Chill.
Note: For testing purposes only, we used Tabasco Hot Sauce.
