Drip Tease
What's brewed, sophisticated and made with beans? Wrong answer! It's not coffee, it's Cabaret! An entire pound of Mexican cacao beans are brewed to produce a single jar. Touted as an adult chocolate beverage, the purveyors of the sultry syrup promise an afterglow. Just add a teaspoon of the stuff to a cup of hot water and...well, let's see what happens. I'm expecting my jar to arrive this week. You can win your very own jar of Cabaret by being the first to post the correct answer
to this riddle:

I'm seldom seen but always heard.
I'm bi-polar and I eat lots of sugar but I'm always on top of things. I'm usually cramped up in my warm, dark, office but if I could stretch out, you'd be surprised at how big I am. Who am I? Good Luck!

Congrats to Light Traveler for solving the riddle. Answer: The Brain.
Light Traveler and I will be sure to let you know how we enjoy Cabaret so check back soon!

So I got my jar today. It's 90 degrees here in New York, so I thought I'd try it iced coffee style. First stirred with with hot water, then poured over ice with milk, which made for a slightly nutty beverage, sort of like a Horchata. It was pretty good. In a cup of hot water, the stuff makes a pleasant chocolate tea, it's sweet enough, so no sugar is needed. My favorite way to enjoy it so far has been over Haagen-Dazs Vanilla Bean ice cream. It tastes like yummy chocolate fudge! I waited 20 minutes to see if I felt any different...an afterglow, a bit sleepy?...nothing so far!! LOL

I am going to have to order a jar of this liquid chocolate. My blog is about Mexican chocolate and I think this would work wonders with some recipes I'm working on. Thank you for the info, it's great. I love your blog.
