Our Gift to You: Mexican Hot Chocolate Cocktail

We normally keep our recipes on lock here at Casa del Barco but with it being the season of giving we decided to make a small exception. After all, the Mexican traditions shouldn’t stop at our restaurants, right? In celebration of our brand new Short Pump Town Center location and our #12DaysofCasa we have decided to share this festive holiday beverage with a little twist. Our Mexican Hot Chocolate Cocktail will have your taste buds jumping for joy. But don’t take our word for it, unleash your inner-bartender and give it a try!

Taco corridors, pop-ups and more: our team’s recent visit to Mexico

Good things come to those who travel, so that’s exactly what we did. This past spring our chef and other HOUSEpitality team members packed their bags and headed to the motherland (of our cuisine that is), Mexico! The crew said goodbye to Richmond and hello to Oaxaca, Tulum and Mexico City. This trip was definitely one for the books and gave us the inspiration needed to continue to provide our guests with the most authentic and delicious dishes possible.

1, 2, 3 Cold Brew

We have just recently announced our partnership with Ironclad Coffee Roasters as well as the creation of our very own coffee, The Boathouse Blend! (served at all Boathouse locations and Casa del Barco.) This rich, new blend is a combination of Brazilian beans and Mexican beans from the Oaxaca region. Oaxaca is a huge inspiration for many of the menu items we create here at Casa del Barco so it only made sense to use this culturally abundant area for our coffee as well.
