Chocolate de Agua (Mexican Hot Chocolate)

Mexican Hot Chocolate


  •  3 ½ cups water
  • 4 ounces high-quality Mexican chocolate, chopped


  1. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add chocolate, reduce heat to medium and stir until the chocolate is melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour into a heatproof pitcher. Using a molinillo (or large whisk) between your palms, quickly roll back and forth until foamy.
  2. Pour into mugs. Serve hot, frothing with the molinillo (or whisk) again to add more foam, if desired.
