How To Make The Fancy Orange Chocolate

Tasting Notes: Orange right up in your grill, still pretty hot on the mouth with a bit of a vodka finish. Hot drinks exhibit a bit more alcoholic potency, and this is no different.

This recipe, submitted on, our new sponsor, brings a bit of a hot cocktail to the summe time. Why would we drink hot chocolate for the summer? The obvious answer being some folks live in Australia and places where the seasons work backwards. Secondly, we’re promoting GarnishBar by giving priority to folks submitting their recipes through them!

Do you drink hot cocktails during the summer season, or stick with the lighter refreshing cocktails?


  • 12 oz. Hot Chocolate
  • 1 oz. Vodka
  • 1 oz. Cointreau
  • 1 tsp Chocolate Shavings (optional)
  • 1 tsp Whipped Cream (optional)
