Chocolate Orange Cocktail (Gin)

We finally got the tree up and had to replace a bunch of lights as the entire top section was dark. Quick public service announcement… If you have a pre-lit Christmas tree and one of the light strings goes out, just unplug it and wrap new lights over that section. DO NOT attempt to take the dead string off the tree!

That’s 2 hours of my life I’ll never get back. Now it’s time for a cocktail and a move to the couch.

Tonight it is a Gin based Chocolate Orange Cocktail.


  • 3 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz @cointreau
  • 1/2 oz Creme de Cacao
  • 2 dashes chocolate bitters

Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice shake and strain into a rocks glass over a large ice cube. Garnish with some shaved chocolate and a spritz of orange oil.
