The best way to make Mexican Hot Chocolate is with clay cookware. Passed down by the Aztecs, it’s still preferred for the unique flavor it lends to food. This handcrafted jug is made with ancient hand-molding techniques and is finished with new techniques to be both functional and decorative. The jug can be used directly over heat - just add milk and chocolate. Try it with the food of the Gods, Oaxacan chocolate and whisk until frothy with the molinillo. The pot can also be used to heat teas, soups, and coffee, or will help keep icy drinks like water and lemonade cool for longer. And can we talk about its triple functionality as a vase or decoration? You’ll be impressed.
