Doesn’t that smell like Christmas? In fact, this is a wonderful drink, which, however, can not only be enjoyed during the Christmas season. The preparation of this is easy. First, the milk is boiled with the orange peel and left to infuse. This allows the milk to absorb the wonderful aroma of the citrus fruits. Then dark chocolate, cinnamon powder, sugar, cocoa powder and freshly squeezed orange juice are added. The result is a uniquely delicious drink.
