This Mexican-inspired hot chocolate recipe creates a whole new hot chocolate experience. Rich, chopped dark chocolate combines with creamy milk, while aged tequila and a dash of cayenne add just the right kick.


  • 6 cups milk

    10 ounces chopped dark chocolate

    1/4 teaspoon Simply Organic Cinnamon

    1/8 teaspoon Simply Organic Cayenne

    4 ounces añejo (aged) tequila

    4 Simply Organic Cinnamon Sticks


    1. In a saucepan, heat milk just to boiling, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon to avoid scorching.

    2. In a medium-sized heat-proof bowl, combine chocolate and hot milk. Stir until smooth and completely melted. Stir in cinnamon in cayenne.

    3. Add tequila, stir, and portion into serving mugs.

    4. Add a cinnamon stick to each mug and serve.

    Recipe Tip:

    This recipe is delicious without the alcohol, too. Simply omit if desired.
