Recipe: Winter Cocktails

Last year Ana and I decided to come up with different winter inspired cocktails and talked about it during our first podcast. This year we wanted to bring them back and post the recipes in this section in case anyone wants to try them for their own holiday parties! 

Spicy Chocolate 
1 cup (8 oz) milk
2 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp of sugar
1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
1 dash of salt
1/4 cup (2 oz) Chila Orchata
1/4 cup (2 oz) Tequila
1 jalapeño

Steps:
Infuse tequila with jalapeño previously to making the drink or muddle a jalapeño with the tequila. If you decide to muddle the jalapeño with the tequila strain the liquor prior to mixing with the hot chocolate.
Warm the milk and add the cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, and the 2 oz of Chila Orchata. Once this is mixed slowly stir in the tequila. Garnish glass with shaved chocolate.
