Autumn is here and with it comes the delicious flavors of chocolate and orange. If you’re looking to get in the holiday spirit, why not try making a warm autumn cocktail at home? This recipe is simple and easy to make. All you need are 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).
First, heat the milk gently in a saucepan over medium heat. Once it starts to simmer, add the grated zest for flavor. Let it boil for about 2 minutes and then remove from the heat. Allow the drink to 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. Stir in the cooking cream until well combined. Return to the stove and reheat if necessary. Finally, stir in your desired amount of rum (if using) and pour into a mug or glass.
To complete this delicious autumn cocktail, top with whipped cream and serve with biscuits or any other treat of your choice. Enjoy!
