Looking for a warm and delicious autumn cocktail to enjoy before the start of Advent? Look no further! You can easily create this tasty drink at home with just a few simple ingredients. 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 (if desired).
To make this drink, start by heating the milk gently in a saucepan over medium heat. Once it reaches a simmer, add the grated zest from the orange for some extra flavor. Let the mixture boil for a few minutes, then remove it from the heat and let it cool at room temperature for about 5 minutes.
Once the milk has cooled down slightly, strain out the peel and discard it. Then add in the chopped chocolate and stir until it is completely melted into the milk. Next, stir in the cooking cream until everything is well combined.
Put the pan back on medium heat and let everything warm up again until it’s nice and hot. At this point, you can add in as much rum as you’d like to give your drink an extra kick if desired. If not using rum, simply leave it out or replace it with another spirit like brandy or vodka.
Finally, pour your warm chocolate-orange cocktail into some mugs and serve them up with whipped cream and biscuits to enjoy fully. With its combination of rich chocolate, sweet orange flavors and creamy texture, this is sure to be a crowd pleaser all autumn long!
