“Lately I have been drawn to using cloves both in the kitchen and when making cocktails. It’s a great warming spice adopted by natives of present day Mexico with the arrival of the Spanish and can now be found in present day Mexican cuisine, including traditional holiday Ponche Mexicano and our riff on the Hot Toddy.” – Milagro National Ambassador, Jaime Salas
