Traditional Molinillo Whisk
The molinillo is a Mexican wooden whisk that’s used to mix up and add froth to a batch of Mexican hot chocolate. You simply roll the shaft between your palms to churn, mix, and foam the chocolate. The molinillo is also great for muddling fruits and herbs in homemade cocktails! It’s a pleasure to use, or gift - and it’s a guaranteed attention-grabber.
Cup or jug?
We make two sizes of molinillos:
- Small: 9'' - 10” - Small batch ready, can use in a small saucepan or large mug for an individual serving.
- Large: 13 - 14” - Make enough for the whole family - mixes and froths a large batch and pairs perfectly with our Red Clay Hot Chocolate Jug.
A Craft Passed Down for Generations
Each molinillo is made by hand - turned and carved out of a single piece of alder wood; then decorated with dark accents burned into the wood. Each of our molinillo artisans have a deep history with woodworking - some spending nearly 50 years making molinillos. It’s a craft that is shared and passed on to keep these rich, intricate pieces alive.
