The Aztec

Chocolate was so prized by the Aztecs that it was used as their form of currency. It was enjoyed without sugar or milk as a bitter, spiced drink. Montezuma reportedly consumed 50 cups a day! We suggest a more moderate consumption of this delicious blend of New World flavors.

The Aztec

  • 1 1/2 ounces chile vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces creme de cacao
  • 1 1/2 ounces whole milk or half and half
  • Ice
  • Bittersweet chocolate shavings

Pour chile vodka, creme de cacao, and whole milk over ice. Shake and strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with shavings. Enjoy while fighting conquistadors.

Serves one.
