"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)."

Yum! This was a really nice cocktail for a hot day. I loved the chocolate flavors and the cinnamon sugar rim really complemented the drink. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper, Lori.

Very tasty. I like the cinnamon with the chocolate. I thought about adding some hot sauce but decided that would be too weird.
