The start of Advent is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with a delicious autumn cocktail at home? To make this warm drink, you will need 300 ml of whole milk, grated peel of one orange, 100 g of chopped dark chocolate, 75 ml of cooking cream and 50 ml of rum (optional).
First, heat the milk gently in a saucepan. Once heated, add the grated zest to taste and let it boil. Then remove from the heat and allow the drink to cool at room temperature for a few minutes. After cooling, strain the peel out and discard.
Next, add the chopped chocolate to the hot milk and stir until completely melted. Once melted, stir in the cooking cream until well combined. Put back on the fire to warm up slightly before pouring in your desired amount of rum (if using).
For an extra special treat, top your cocktail with whipped cream and serve it with biscuits for dipping. Enjoy this delectable combination of flavors as you get ready for Advent!
