FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is La Bamba stirred and not shaken?

La Bamba is stirred instead of shaken to maintain a smooth texture and to prevent the chocolate milk from potentially becoming foamy or aerated as it might with shaking. Stirring gently combines the ingredients while preserving their rich, creamy consistency.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute regular milk or cream for chocolate milk in La Bamba?

Yes, you can substitute regular milk or cream for chocolate milk in La Bamba if you prefer a less sweet or more customizable drink. You can add chocolate syrup or cocoa powder to adjust the chocolate flavor to your liking.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve La Bamba?

La Bamba should be served cold in a highball glass. You can enhance its presentation by garnishing with chocolate shavings or a dusting of cocoa powder atop the drink for an extra touch of elegance and flavor.
