To make authentic Mexican Hot Chocolate, you need traditionally made chocolate, a hand-carved molinillo, and an artisanal Mexican clay jug. Luckily, we’ve put together this Mexican Hot Chocolate gift set with all three!
Cocoa is a key part of the Mexican gastronomy – it’s a legacy food made for sharing. By using everything in our Mexican Hot Chocolate Gift Set, your rich, complex-flavored, smooth hot chocolate drink will retain the unique aroma and nostalgic taste enjoyed for generations.
Chocolate: Family-owned business Villa Real treats cocoa the traditional way, as a sacred ingredient inherited from their ancestors.
Clay Jug: Rodolfo Pila loves to create functional, decorative art. He makes our gorgeous Hot Chocolate Jug, which uses the age-old technique of polishing the clay with stones to give each piece a rich hue after the second firing.
Large Molinillo: Juan Alonso has spent the last 47 years making Molinillos. From small sizes to stunning 3 and 4 foot complex pieces, his work is exceptional. He works alongside with his two sons in their workshop. Estabon, 38, has been making Molinillos for 3 years with his father. Luis Alberto, 24, who studied Fine Arts at the University in Toluca.
