Chocolate Chipotle Powder:

2 tablespoons high quality cocoa powder

1 tablespoon ground chipotle (dried, smoked jalapenos)

1 tablespoon ground pepitas (toasted pumpkin seeds)

Tap the glass gently to knock off the extra powder. Pour the rest of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosty. Strain immediately into the glasses and serve.
