Kiss My Aztec

Pin it


The Aztecs believed our ability to love was a gift from the wind god Ehecatl, who fell for a human girl. Bar Louie returns the favor with a sexy mocha martini inspired by Aztec leader Montezuma’s favorite chocolate drink.

To make a little cocktail love at home, you’ll need 1.5 ounces each Patron XO Café and Patron XO Café Dark Cocoa, 1 ounce half-and-half cream, whipped cream and a shaker of 50/50 cinnamon and cayenne blend. Measure the half-and-half in a jigger and pour it into a mixing glass. Add both liquors, shake vigorously, and strain. Finish with whipped cream and three shakes of the cinnamon-pepper blend. Spice up your romance by sharing with your sweetie, if you can sacrifice a sip.
