28 Oct 2017 by Pedro Aristes in Cuisine, General, Home, Pleasure, Products, Spirits

This November 1 join our Mexican neighbors to commemorate Día de los Muertos. Believed that the souls of the dead return for the night, this holiday is a festive and joyous celebration that combines food, drink, and activities to honor your ancestors.

Perfect for November weather, Natalie Suarez of Natalie Off Duty created her own take on a spirited Mexican hot chocolate using Tequila Don Julio, dark chocolate, coconut milk, and bright raspberry purée. This deliciously warm cocktail is made with Mexico’s drink of choice, Don Julio 70 – the world’s first añejo claro tequila.

Gather your friends this upcoming holiday and take part in this important Mexican celebration of life with the Sweet Spirit.
