  • Add 1 tbsp* Tawny Porto, the egg white of 1 egg, 1 tsp** smoked paprika powder and 1 tbsp* of bitter cacao powder. Whisk this mass with molinillo (Mexican wooden whisk) or regular whisk in case you don’t have a molinillo until a lovely foam layer appears (the egg white will make the drink very airy).
