Coffee, and more specifically caffeine, is associated with alertness, improving the processing speed of the brain. Second, bitter and dark chocolate is associated with improved learning abilities and better performances during complex mental tasks. The flavonoids that are absorbed when chocolate is consumed penetrate and accumulate in the brain regions involved in learning and memory, especially the hippocampus. These flavonoids increase blood flow to the brain, promote the formation of new neurons, improve the functioning of existing neurons, enhance connections between them, and protect them from death caused by free radicals. To help you improve you mental performance and enjoy these ingredients we created a cocktail out of a rich Cuban coffee liquor, vodka and a delicate bitter of Aztec chocolate.
