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
  • 1 tablespoons Heavy Cream
  • ¾ ounce Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
  • 1 tablespoon Divine 70% Bittersweet chocolate

Method

1

Put milk, cinnamon and chile stick in a pot over a low flame and warm until the milk is hot, fragrant and spicy.

2

While it is heating, make a paste with cocoa, sugar, and cream in the bottom of a mug, and then mix in mezcal.

3

Top with hot milk mixture.

4

Serve with softly whipped cream and shaved Divine 70% Bittersweet chocolate.
