Hot Chocolate with Grand Marnier and Goldschläger

Hot Chocolate is one of the most popular and soothing winter drinks, perfect for a cozy evening inside by the fire. One thing about chocolate we’ve found is how well it goes with orange so we’ve started adding a little grand marnier liqueur to make it extra special. When we really want a treat, we add a splash of Goldschläger too which is a cinnamon schnapps with tiny flakes of gold floating in it.

Snuggling up to a cinnamon and orange laced hot chocolate is one of our favorite ways to relax after hours of shoveling snow or editing photos. Spoiler alert – you’re going to want more than one cup so be sure to make a double batch.
