When it comes to traditional mouthwatering Latin drinks, the Mexican hot chocolate is one that has been seducing patrons for thousands of years.  Known as the original hot chocolate, this succulent treat was first discovered by the Aztecs and prepared for Emperor Montezuma, who believed that the frothy “chocolat” mixed with vanilla, wine, and pepper, would boost his libido. So what does a royal do to satisfy hundreds of women just waiting to be pleased all night long? Simple: drink up to 50 goblets of hot chocolate before having hours of sex! Since then, this spicy aphrodisiac continues to reign supreme. 

As the weather begins to get warmer in time for the steamy months of summer, what can we do to satisfy our chocolate cravings? Consider the Mexican Hot Chocolate Martini, which has been receiving rave reviews across the country.  Made by mixologist Jeret Richard Pena from San Antonio, this rich, creamy number is luscious, perfectly chilled to beat the heat, and has an added hot kick to keep you wanting more. If you’re ready to get lucky, make two for you and your beau. You won’t believe how quickly you’ll lure any thirsty admirer.
