10. Mexican Hot Chocolate

Mexican Hot Chocolate

What makes Mexican Hot Chocolate different from traditional hot chocolate? Well, first off, Mexican Hot Chocolate draws from a rich history (pun intended) of Mexican drinking chocolate (which is how Europeans were introduced to chocolate). Second, it's all about the Mexican chocolate: it has the deep, floral, bittersweet flavor of chocolate accented and highlighted by a combination of warming spices, most prominently cinnamon and chili. This makes Mexican Hot Chocolate an even more invigorating and comforting brew than the traditional drink, balanced out by the creamy milk. This is how you'll make hot chocolate when the weather gets nippy from now on!
