Hot Chocolate. The perfect drink for a cold winter’s day. I love any kind of chocolate. I love any kind of hot chocolate – even Swiss Miss in a pinch. But Mexican Hot Chocolate? That’s something special. Made with whole milk, real chocolate (not cocoa powder) and just a touch of cinnamon, nutmeg, & cayenne pepper – you have yourself a cup of rich, smooth, decadent delight. Something not to just be drunk, but to be savored. In my Fireball Mexican Hot Chocolate, I decided to make it more of an adult beverage by substituting Fireball Cinnamon Whisky for the cinnamon. To. Die. For.
