If you live in or near a city with a significant Mexican population (even places like NY and Raliegh-Durham), you might be able to find Nestle's Mexican hot chocolate in the grocery store. It's got the cinnamon and a bit of liquor included. It comes in the form of hockey-puck sized discs. You throw a disc and 4 cups of hot milk in the blender and you're good to go. It is outstanding.

It seems to be missing something...I think that at a Sunday morning breakfast made by the K-crew, Kaluha would be added!
