Grand Marnier Hot Chocolate

Saw this on the Sur la Table site. I live in the Bay Area, and we have lots of cool foggy nights, so this is a year round drink.

This orange flavored liqueur mixed with hot chocolate is guaranteed to warm your spirit.
Some additions or alternatives: To spice this up, add 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper to each mug. There are some great packaged hot chocolate mixes available, so choose your favorite or create from scratch. You can also mix some Grand Marnier into the whipped cream for a double treat! Another variation would be to use Kahlua in place of the Grand Marnier!

Serves 2

2-oz Grand Marnier
3 Cups Hot Chocolate (I like Scharffen Berger)
½ Cup whipping cream, lightly whipped
Cinnamon Sticks for garnish


1. Make the hot chocolate according to package directions (or follow your favorite recipe)
2. Pour one ounce of Grand Marnier into each coffee cup and fill the cup with hot chocolate
3. In a bowl lightly whip the fresh cream and spoon on top of the hot chocolate.
4. Insert a cinnamon stick in each cup and serve

Not too early for me. I just got back yesterday from a v..e..r..y.. long ride from PA. I needed wine last night and Grand Marnier today while I catch up on everyone's posts!!!

It is never too early for Grand Marnier. NEVER! Consider it in the area of Bloody Marys. They work in the morning.
It is cool and foggy, go make some and enjoy.
