 Spiked Mexican Hot Chocolate Halloween Cocktail recipe via Waiting on MarthaSpiked Mexican Hot Chocolate for Halloween | Waiting on Martha

When have you ever known us to miss an opportunity to make a beloved drink into a boozy libation? It sure doesn’t happen often, and we didn’t skip a beat adding a little Don Julio Tequila to make the best ever spiked rendition from a seasonal favorite.

Our spiked Mexican hot chocolate captures that wickedly delicious play of flavors between the bittersweet chocolate, spicy cayenne, cinnamon and vanilla. The result is a rich, velvety sip that packs the perfect amount of heat. Add adorable pumpkin mugs from Pottery Barn and a decadent, homemade whipped cream with our signature ooey-gooey drip of chocolate and you have yourself—what we think is—one of the best ways to stay warm this fall.  

And with that, loves, we close out a boozy October (the best kind). Rummy Spiced Cider, Ginny Gin Gin Punch, Boozy Butterbeer and Spiked Mexian Hot Chocolate…can you try to pick a favorite?? I hope you all have a perfectly haunting Halloween! Truly, MKR
