This is a delish recipe (chick drink, according to DH) from Rick Bayless' new cookbook "Frontera". A bit sweet, but YUM!!! The recipe calls for cinammon agave syrup, but I just used a homemade cinnamon simple syrup (simple syrup with a stick of cinnamon during cooking).

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 ounces white tequila
  • 12 ounce Creme de Cacao
  • 12 ounce cinnamon agave syrup or 12 ounce simple syrup
  • 12 ounce chocolate syrup (good quality, room temp)
  • 6 -10 ice cubes
  • cinnamon sugar


  1. Wet the rim of a small martini glass and dip the rim in cinnamon sugar. Set aside.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, add remaining ingredients EXCEPT ice cubes. Shake for ten seconds to completely blend the chocolate sauce.
  3. Add the ice to the shaker, then shake vigorously for at least 15 seconds, or until tiny ice crystals form.
  4. Strain into the sugar-crusted glass and serve immediately.
