Orange Mocha with Rum

Hot coffee. Creamy chocolate. Fragrant orange. And rum from the tropics. What could be cozier on a winter holiday afternoon?

Of course, you can leave out the alcohol but I must confess, I never do! 

Orange Mocha

  • 1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 1/4 c. sugar

Heat and stir till chocolate is melted. Boil 2 minutes.

  • 1 1/2 cups coffee (a great use for what's left in the pot)
  • 1/3 c. half & half
  • zest from half an orange
  • 1/4 cup rum, optional

Heat to steaming, but do not boil. Strain out the orange rind before serving.

Makes about 3 servings.
