Azteca latte

In a blender, blend the espresso or coffee with the chocolate. Strain.


Pour the liqueurs into each of two (8-ounce) coffee mugs. Heat the chocolate-coffee blend in a steamer or a saucepan and divide it between the mugs.


Fill each mug to the brim with steamed milk. Garnish each mug with equal amounts of cinnamon and sugar, a pinch of rice cracker balls, if using, and a cinnamon stick.

From Josef Centeno. Mexican chocolate such as Ibarra and Abuelita is available at many supermarkets; it comes in round tablets. Rice cracker balls can be found at some Japanese markets.
