DOTW: One Hot Mexican Ginger

As winter approaches I can think of nothing more than escaping the cold to a beach somewhere in southern Mexico. But as I can’t, I figured I could bring the warmth of southern Mexico to me, and throw in a little #Infusiasm while I’m at it.

If you prefer easy Mexican gingers, just use instant hot chocolate for your base. This drink will assuredly warm your soul with a bit of kick on a brisk winter day.

Enjoy!
