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.
