As we approach the start of Advent and the abundance of delicious treats that come with it, why not prepare a delicious autumn cocktail at home? This warm drink combines the flavors of chocolate and orange for a cozy and decadent treat.
To make this delightful cocktail, you will need 300 ml of whole milk, the grated peel of one orange, 100 g of chopped dark chocolate, 75 ml of cooking cream, and 50 ml of rum (if desired). Begin by gently heating the milk and adding the grated orange zest for flavor. Allow it to boil and then remove it from the heat. Let the drink cool at room temperature for a few minutes before straining out the peel.
Next, add the chopped chocolate to the hot milk and stir until it is completely melted. Then, stir in the cooking cream. Return the mixture to the heat to warm it up, and then pour in the desired amount of rum.
Finally, you can serve the warm cocktail with a dollop of whipped cream and some biscuits for a delightful combination of flavors. Enjoy the cozy and comforting taste of chocolate and orange in this homemade autumn cocktail.
