A boozy play on Mexican Hot Chocolate, the earthy, roasted flavor of this artisanal spirit brings out the complexity and spices of the cocoa; the cinnamon and spice provide a nice foil to its fruitiness.
Ingredients 
  • 6 ounces Whole Milk
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 1 Chile de Arbol
  • 1 tablespoon Divine Cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon Demerarra sugar

  3. Top with hot milk.
  4. Serve with softly whipped cream and shaved Divine 70% Bittersweet chocolate.
