Mexican Hot Chocolate

The word chocolate comes from xocoatl, which is a Mexican term meaning "aguada de cocoa." Cocoa is a powerful food, a legacy of Mexico for the world. It is part of the Mexican gastronomy, and each region has its own way of preparation. It was a sacred liquor of the gods, historically taken sour or bitter, and mixed with water. Upon the arrival of the Spaniards, they added sugar and milk, making it into the luxury drink we know today. By preparing your Mexican hot chocolate with our Villa Real chocolate, traditional molinillo, and authentic clay jug, your drink will retain the unique aroma and nostalgic taste that has been enjoyed for generations before.
