6 Easy Mexican Valentine's Recipes
ROSA MEXICANA HOT CHOCOLATE
First cultivated in China around 5,000 years ago, roses have made their way into Europe and to Mexico where it remains a beloved symbol of love, faith, and heavily associated with La Virgen de Guadalupe. You can invoke the feeling
of light and romance into almost anything using a dash of edible rose petals.
Rosa de Castilla is especially popular and loved for its beautiful magenta and cream hues.
CORAZON LATTE ART
The perfect DIY recipe that includes items you most likely already have – cream and coffee. We made ours using our signature Cafe de Olla or Oaxaca Reserve and almond milk creamer. All it takes is a dollop of cream, one flick inwards using any utensil, and you have a heart!
