So after a chocolate liqueur flavoured with vanilla, a spiced chocolate liqueur flavoured with cinnamon, ginger and cloves, here is another super tasty experiment: orange and chocolate liqueur.
Orange and chocolate is such a classic and delicious combination that it makes it really difficult to resist… Using our first chocolate liqueur recipe that worked so fine, we made a few adjustments to bring the right amount of flavour this liqueur deserves, and it came out just perfect!
- 75 g of bittersweet cocoa powder (the best you can find)
- 50 g of grated dark chocolate 70%
- 250 g of sugar
- 2 oranges (only the peel)
- 1 L of milk
- 250 g of alcohol (95°)
- 1 small glass of rum
Peel 2 oranges. If they are not biological, boil the orange peels for 1 minute and leave them aside to dry.
In a pan, add cocoa powder, sugar and grated dark chocolate. Start pouring slowly a glass of milk, stirring with a whisk to obtain a creamy and omogeneous mixture without lump, then add the remaining milk. Turn on the heat on small heat and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Turn off the heat and add the orange peels.
When cool, taste your chocolate and if the orange flavour is intense enough to your taste, take out the orange peels. Add the alcohol and the glass of rum.
Wait about 1 week to fully enjoy it. Keep your orange and chocolate liqueur in the fridge up to 5-6 months.
Tips: This chocolate liqueur will make more residue than the others. You might want to pour it first in one big bottle and after a week, filter it and pour it in small ones.
