Also known as “Chocolate Orange” or “Christmas Smarties”, for some reason this great drink has become linked to the festive season for me. I can’t remember now how I was first introduced to this tipple (if it was you, and you’re reading this, please remind me); but I’m sure you’ll love it if you try it.
- Tia Maria
- Orange juice
Take a standard tumbler (the glass in the picture is a typical pub half pint glass). Pour in two measures of Tia Maria. Add a few ice cubes, then top up with fresh orange juice (the carton type or some good old Britvic). Enjoy!
Play around with the measure to get a taste you prefer. You may like a single measure of Tia Maria, you may want more or less orange juice. Feel free to experiment till you get the desired flavour.
