The flavour of oranges and chocolate almost always take me back to childhood eating Jaffas by the bagful. In case you’ve never had them, Jaffas are Australian candies that are a bit like round M&M’s but coated with crunchy orange flavoured candy.
The other day, a few packs of lunch-sized cartons of chocolate milk were accidentally delivered along with my other groceries. By the time I realized the mistake the delivery guy was already gone and I figured the they wouldn’t want to dispatch another guy to come pick them up.
I’m not much of a milk drinker, but tossing them seemed like a bit of a waste. Instead, I popped a few Lactaid’s and added a few ounces of Grand Marnier to make tasty chocolate orange martini. If for some reason you’re not a fan of the chocolate orange combo, it’s also delicious with vodka.
1/2 pint of cold chocolate milk
1 oz of Grand Marnier (or vodka) that’s been left in the freezer
Pour the chocolate milk into a chilled glass then add the Grand Marnier. Stir to combine and serve.
If you want to make it a little more potent, use 1oz of vodka and 1oz of grand marnier for every half pint of chocolate milk.
