Drinking an imperial stout in the hottest part of the year doesn't always make sense, but it works when you added flavors from somewhere that's hot almost all year. After doing some research online for Mexican desserts and having experimented with Aztec Cocoa in the past, I made a trip to one of the local Mexican markets and loaded up on Mexican chocolate, cinnamon, piloncillo, and peppers. Chef Juan blended them into a puree for me and I topped the whole thing off with coffee from our neighbors at Coffee Hound. Salud!
