  • cups unmelted chocolate
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup tequila
  • ½ 14oz. can of condensed milk - or a little less if your chocolate is very sweet
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. chilli pepper - and a little for garnish
  • Cinnamon - for garnish


  • Add the milk to a pan and heat on a low flame. After 5 minutes, add the chocolate and mix until melted.
  • Add the heavy cream, condensed milk and spices.
  • Mix and heat for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add tequila and stir.
  • Pour into a bottle and refrigerate.
  • When serving, shake and pour through a strainer. Garnish with a few sprinkles of chili pepper and cinnamon.


You can also add half a cut jalapeño to a cup of tequila over night, rather than use cayenne, to spice up your liqueur.
