Mixology Expert Bob Peters Whips Up A Mean Spiked Mexican Hot Cocoa

Mixologist Bob Peters is known for his wild experimentation, but certain seasons, especially those hustling, bustling  call for simplicity.

Available in the Ritz Carlton’s K Lounge through the holidays, Bob’s Mexican Cocoa substitutes the usual amalgam of spices in the virgin version with the burn of Casamigos tequila añejo. The rest is up to you: Bob recommends your favorite recipe for homemade hot chocolate.

Look—it’s a busy time of the year. The extended family is closer than perhaps you’d like them to be, and your drink is the last thing you should be worrying over. Just splash something pricey, smooth, and aged in there. It’s the most wonderful time of the year for two-year-old tequila.
