Mole Margarita
This comes from Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar, which knows a thing or two about margaritas. The restaurant invites customers to sit back and enjoy the island lifestyle and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The chef's eclectic, tropical cocktails are available at the bars, like the Mole Margarita. This unique margarita is a south-of-the-border taste sensation! Tanteo® Cocoa Tequila, mole bitters, Grand Marnier® and scratch sour mix are shaken and poured over ice into a glass rimmed with a savory mix of coffee, salt and sugar.

Suggested Wine Pairing: Ceja Carneros Pinot Noir, Ceja Carneros Merlot and Ceja Vino de Casa Red Blend Mole is an all-encompassing title for a number of sauces in Mexican cuisine. The sauce from the city of Oaxaca is one of the better-known varieties. Classic Oaxaca, such as mole negro, includes a variety of peppers, sometimes reaching almost 30 types. Though mole is not simply a chocolate sauce as it has come to be known, chocolate can be added for a bit of rich flavor. This recipe for Mole Negro de Oaxaca is a chicken dish with a variety of spices, peppers, and chocolate.

Mole Ofrenda
This is not a recipe for the traditional mole from Puebla, which is very complicated, takes an extremely long time, and involves many ingredients, most of which are hard to source. A really simple and delicious version of mole hails from northern Mexico (where I’m from). My personal preference is to serve this mole with enchiladas (rolled corn tortillas filled with a protein or vegetable of your choosing), topped with the mole sauce.

Mole Amarillito con Chochoyotes (Yellow Mole with Masa Dumplings)
Cooking any one of Mexico's famously delicious moles makes me feel more like I'm in an alchemist's workshop than in a kitchen. This delicious amarillito, or "little yellow," mole is a classic. It is easy compared with how laborious some of Mexico's other moles can be — it can be made, as we Mexicans say, "with one hand on your hip." It is light and bright, but despite the fact that it's not actually yellow, the name has stuck. The dish comes from Oaxaca, a state in southern Mexico known in the culinary world for its many versions of mole. The chochoyotes, or dimpled corn masa dumplings, enrich and thicken the sauce, and the dimple in the center of each one holds the sauce like a tasty, fluffy edible spoon.
