Have you ever gone to a Mexican restaurant and they serve you a hot or cold beverage in a very cute clay mug? This is actually called a Mexican Jarrito.
Jarritos are hand-made clay cups, very popular in Mexican culture. The natural porosity of the unglazed clay helps keep beverages hot or cold. Jarritos are typically hand painted and come in various designs and sizes. People sometimes utilize large clay cups as decoration or even as flower vases.
Personally, I always use my Jarritos to drink hot chocolate; a tradition passed on to me by my grandmother. You can buy Jarritos on popular websites, such as Amazon or Etsy, but they can be somewhat pricey. If visiting Mexico, stop by a local artisans store. You will get a set of Jarritos for a few dollars and the selection available will be enormous.
If you google Mexican Jarritos, the first picture that will come up is probably the very popular soda drink, also called Jarritos. But if you use key words such as ‘pottery’, you will be able to find many designs available, and believe me you will want a set of Jarritos for your house.
