The Story

spiced delight.

Here at Don Juan Chiles, we are plenty serious about getting you the dry goods you need to spice your life up, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t up for some fun while we’re at it.   A Hot Toddy is a mixed drink that taps into some of our favorite spices and promises to be a crowd pleaser.   Plus, as fall continues to kick in, it only seems right that a warm drink like this makes an appearance.  Nothing wrong with cracking open a cold one or kicking back with some fine wine after a long week, but it is lots of fun to quite literally spice things up every once in a while, and the Hot Toddy is a perfect solution.  ¡Provecho!

A dash of brown sugar or cane sugar on top won’t hurt.
