Cuba Libre Molten Drinking Chocolate
Meet our Molten Drinking Chocolate, hot chocolate’s worldly, refined, bold, sophisticated cousin. Each 6 oz. variety has a unique provenance, reflected in the hand-selected ingredients used to architect our flavors. And like all our chocolates, every combination of ingredients, flavors, and aromas tells a unique story.
Enjoy a taste of freedom! The Cuba Libre cocktail dates back to the Cuban fight for independence in the late 19th century. The drink is rumored to have received its name in Havana when a US Army Corps captain ordered his usual rum and cola with a twist of lime and then loudly toasted, “Por Cuba Libre!” Here, we celebrate the flavors of the classic cocktail by blending cane sugar and rum together with a heady mixture of orange, lime, and lemon zests to capture the notes of cola, spirits, and citrus.
What makes drinking chocolate different from hot cocoa?
To put it simply: how the drink mix is made. The biggest distinction is a purer product. Our drinking chocolates are made of real chocolate instead of cocoa powder, which means they don't dissolve...they melt. This leads to a richer, warmer, thicker, more aromatic drinking experience. Hot cocoa usually relies on powdered milk, thickeners, stabilizers, and myriad other ingredients that we personally don’t love putting in our bodies, let alone our drinking chocolate.
Drinking chocolate is meant to be savored. Sink into your favorite chair with a warm mug of our Molten Drinking Chocolate and take a deep breath as the aroma of our superior cacao and spices envelops your senses.
This past weekend I tasted the Cuba Libre Molten Drinking Hot Chocolate and was amazed. I am not typically a hot chocolate fan as I think the taste is usually too sweet and gives me a headache. M Cacao's hot chocolate is rich, silky and the taste is perfect. You can taste the chocolate rather than the sweetness. I was amazed. I ordered some immediately and can't wait. I am a huge fan! I hope to sign up for classes soon.
