Snow Day Treat: Tex-Mex Hot Chocolate

  • Author: Created by Aaron Polsky of Harvard & Stone
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 1 20 oz can coconut milk
  • 2 disks Mexican hot chocolate (I prefer Ibarra Mexican Hot Chocolate)
  • 1 teaspoon mole bitters (I prefer Bittermens Mole Bitters)
  • 1/4 teaspoon TABASCO® Sauce
  • 6 oz reposado tequila or mezcal


  • Coconut flakes or marshmallows


  1. In a saucepan, add coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Add chocolate disks, mole bitters, and TABASCO® Sauce and whisk until the chocolate disks have melted. Remove from heat.
  2. To serve, add 3/4 cup hot chocolate base to a heated mug, and add 1.5 oz Reposado Tequila or Mezcal and stir. Garnish with a sprinkling of coconut flakes and marshmallows. Leave a bottle of TABASCO® Sauce out for your guests to add more if they want it spicier.
