Mole in a cup. It’s not your grandmother’s recipe, rather it’s Starbucks’ Chile Mocha, and it’s probably my favorite drink of the fall. Yes people, even over my beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte. There is something so sexy about the chocolate and heat from the spice. It hits you in the back of the throat and makes you go in for another sip. The whipped cream does put that fire on ice a bit, if you aren’t ready for a kick in the mouth that early in the morning.
Call your nearest fireman if you get anything larger than a grande – it could become too much of a good thing. This fiery drink would pair perfectly with any romance novel that has an equally hot and spicy scene.
