• Dr. Sours #9 3 Chiles is our own hot’n smoky Mexican chili mix. Putting chili on everything is a Mexican custom and there is a great variety of Mexican chilies from super dangerous hot, mild and savory to sweet and smoky. These last two flavours bring the main characteristics to our bitter, it will heat up your cocktail with a moderate spiciness that almost immediately turns into a smoky sweetness. Although chilies may be good source of fiber and a great antioxidant, use our bitter moderately: Drop it like it’s hot!

    Serving suggestion: Our #9 may be added as a secret ingredient to a burning Bloody Mary or a Mexican Negroni. It can also be used preparing Mexican salsas, guacamole or a chili con/sin carne.
