The scent of hot tsokolate (chocolate), made from cacao tablea, always evokes warm and fuzzy childhood memories of Christmas morning or post-Simbang Gabi breakfasts. Don Papa’s resident mixologist Kathryn Eckstein-Cornista has created a tsokolate-based cocktail that is sure to stir the holiday spirit.

Inspired by her Lola’s hot tsokolate aka sikawate, she pairs rich melted tablea with an equally Filipino product, Don Papa Rum. The addition of peppermint wakes up the palate; Kath says it also adds a touch of “festiveness” to the drink.
