Official Cocktail of Winter

Downslope Official Cocktail of Winter

Looking out the window the snow is starting to blow and the temperature is in the teens.  This got me thinking- what is my favorite cocktail of winter.  The answer was easy…


The Melted Mayan

1.5 oz Downslope Pepper Vodka

One Abuelita Chocolate tablet ( available thru most grocers)

Whole Milk

Whipped cream

Bring 1 cup of milk to a high simmer and add crushed tablet to milk

Whisk milk until chocolate is dissolved and milk is frothy

Rim a large clear mug with turbinado (sugar in the raw)

Pour spirits in mug, top with whip cream, dust with chipotle powder  and look out the window the rest of the day and dream of ancient cultures!
