Como Agua para Chocolate (Alcohol-Infused Mexican Hot Chocolate)

You’re going to love this Mexican Hot chocolate, infused with flavors of Kahlua, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cayenne.   This hot chocolate is comforting as it should be, but also spicy and seductive.

Como agua para Chocolate (Like Water for Chocolate) is a novel by Laura Esquivel, about a young woman, Tita, who is passionately in love with Pedro.  Unfortunately, Tita’s mother forbids the relationship.  When Pedro marries Tita’s sister, Tita pours her heartbreak into her cooking, infusing all who eat the food with her intense feelings.

This story is about a struggle between powerful women.  Just like our recipe, chocolate and water don’t mix unless things get hot.

In this extended metaphor, water represents a night of sex ending in death.  Chocolate represents unrequited love or being horny for 20 years!

To Hell with longing and sacrifice!  Enjoy a cup of ‘Como Agua para Chocolate’ with someone you love…

This is the perfect hot and creamy cocktail for Dia De Los Muertos (Day Of The Dead Nov. 1 & 2,) and for Christmas.
