Chocolate was originally conceived of not as a bar but  as a drink over 4000 years ago in Central America and due to this long history, there's a huge diversity of different chocolate drinks and ingredients throughout the Mayan, Aztec, and Zapotec regions of modern-day Mexico down through Honduras with drinks like champurrado, tejate, bu'pu, pozol, tascalate, and popo. We'll explore and sample this diversity as well as seeing how this floral and spice ingredients can be reinterpreted in modern-day bars.
