rosita de cacao


This drink looks horrible but it tastes amazing… It’s a drink traditionally from Oaxaca made of toasted corn flour, fermented cacao beans, mamey and rosita de cacao all mixed with water. The flor de cacao raises like a foam, which is the grose bit but it really tastes delicious.

This woman is always in the market on Saturdays and also sells several ‘aguas frescas’ or fresh waters, the most common are horchata, tamarindo and agua de jamaica… they’re sugar bombs!
