After dinner, this is what “demitasse” meant in my family. 1950s Italian Brooklyn, not 2010s hipster Brooklyn.
When it dips down to the 70s here in LA we pretend it’s cold enough for a hot beverage, so here’s one for you: champurrado, or Mexican style hot cocoa. I made this one using a traditional molinollo, a wooden whisk from Oaxaca. And since I’m in Southern California posting a drink inspired by Mexican cuisine, here’s a Southern Californian band singing a song inspired by Mexican music: Mariachi El Bronx doing “Revolution Girls” in 2011 on #Letterman.
