Confessions of a Mixologist: Mexican Hot Chocolate

Have you tried the Mexican Hot Chocolate? More importantly - have you tried our version of the Mexican Hot Chocolate? We use Ancho Reyes Ancho Chile Liqueur to give it a nice kick. It's definitely worth the investment, as this spicy liqueur pairs well with just about anything. Seriously - try it with Tecate, add it to grapefruit juice or give your old fashioned a splash for some added heat!
