2 ½ cups whole milk
¾ cup Ghirardelli White Chocolate Chips
1 chipotle pepper
1 dash grated orange zest, for garnish
1 cinnamon stick (grated)
1 pinch salt
½ cup El Tesoro Añejo Tequila
Combine milk, chocolate, pepper, orange zest, cinnamon stick and salt in a pot and warm them over a low heat stirring occasionally. Heat until all chocolate has dissolved and is at slightly higher than desired temperature. Do not bring the mixture to a boil. Remove from heat and add El Tesoro. Discard the cinnamon stick, orange zest and chipotle pepper. Serve the drink in a mug with an orange zest garnish and topped with fresh grated cinnamon.
