Cool Tool: The Hernan Molinillo

We’re loving this artsy and functional molinillo from Hernan LLC ($14, Dean & Deluca, 212-226-6800). But how do you use one of these sculptured wooden tools? It’s simple. Like a blender but quieter and easier to clean, the molinillo is a Mexican stirrer that you vigorously roll between your hands to froth chocolate drinks like hot cocoa and Champurrado. It’s also a pretty unique holiday gift—yummy, frothy Mexican hot cocoa on Christmas morning? Absolutely!
