As autumn approaches and the advent of winter draws near, why not treat yourself to a warm and delicious cocktail to get you ready for the holiday season? One such cocktail is a chocolate and orange drink that can be easily made at home. Here’s what you’ll need: 300 ml of whole milk, grated peel of one orange, 100 g of chopped dark chocolate, 75 ml cooking cream, and 50 ml of rum (optional).
To make this drink, start by heating the milk gently in a saucepan over medium heat. Once it starts to simmer, add the grated zest from one orange for some added flavor. Let it cook for a few minutes until the milk reaches your desired temperature. Then remove the pan from heat and let it cool for a few minutes at room temperature before straining out the peel.
Next, add the chopped dark chocolate to the hot milk and stir until it is completely melted. Once everything is well combined, stir in the cooking cream until it becomes smooth and creamy. Return the mixture to the stove top over medium heat to reheat it if needed. Finally, pour in your desired amount of rum (if using) and give it one last stir before serving.
For an extra special touch, top off your warm cocktail with some whipped cream and serve with biscuits or other treats on the side. Enjoy this delicious combination of flavors as you get ready for all that awaits during advent!
