Mexican Hot Chocolate Shots

The cold weather is blowing in and we're sooooo ready for this Mexican Hot Chocolate cocktail! For our Day Of The Dead costume party we had planned on serving Mexican chocolate.  But then the super smart and friendly cashier at Whole Foods told me what we should really do is melt the chocolate with a little milk, pour it into shot glasses and spike it.  Brilliant!  Here's our recipe for a very yummy adult dessert beverage:  


Taza Chocolate Mexicano Cacao Puro (1 package makes 4 servings)
Milk (1/4 cup per serving)
Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur (1/4 cup per serving)


  1. Finely chop 1/2 chocolate disk per serving. 
  2. Add chocolate and 1/4 cup milk per serving to a saucepan.  
  3. Whisk and melt slowly over low heat.  
  4. Pour into a demitasse and add fill remaining cup with Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur.  


Earthy, sensual and meant to be savored, chocolate has been believed to spark passion and creativity for centuries. What better accompaniment than Chavela Vargas whose work inspired Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and countless other artists?
