Get Frothy with It: The Secret Ingredient

Speaking of an edge, what makes artisanal Mexican hot chocolate sets truly stand out is not just about what's inside but the tool that comes alongside. Say hello to your new best friend, the 'Molinillo'! Now if you're thinking, 'Mol-ini-what?' allow us to introduce you to this nifty little tool that could rival any modern kitchen gadget with its rustic charm and efficiency. The Molinillo, generated from the Spanish word ‘molino,’ which means mill, is a wooden whisk-like tool that the Aztecs originally used to froth up their chocolate drinks in clay jars. Consider it like your own medieval KitchenAid whisk attachment, except it has a more personable personality, and it doesn't need batteries or electricity—just a pair of your willing and manual hands. Using a Molinillo is quite the workout, or as we like to call it, the ‘choco-lates’ exercise. The basic technique is to roll the handle rapidly between your palms to create a whirlpool effect in your mug, thereby giving your Mexican hot chocolate that highly desirable, overlooked frothy crown. One minute into the Molinillo workout, and you're bound to feel muscles you never knew existed!

Your Passport to Flavour Town: Serving Suggestions

If you thought deciding on your hot chocolate set was the exciting part, wait until we dive into serving presentations! Handling your hot mug of Mexican hot chocolate is a visual 'Dia de los Muertos' festival which is just as important to the experience as the luscious beverage you're about to enjoy. Ring those bells around your neck because the first serving suggestion is to pair your hot chocolate with freshly baked 'pan de muerto', a traditional Mexican sweet bread. Unlike your regular bread, this delightful accompaniment is covered in sugar and often tinged with a hint of anise or orange. Dunk it in your mug and ascend straight to chocolate heaven. Oh, the beautiful union of crumbly bread soaked in steamy rich chocolate! Second, add a generous dollop of whipped cream. Go ahead, pile it high like a mountaintop, drizzle cinnamon on top, and do not forget those colorful sprinkles. If you're feeling really daring, dust a smidge of chili powder atop the cream mountain. This adds a festive kick like a fireworks finale, lighting up your taste buds like the night sky during Las Posadas.
