Thoughts of Christmas always seem to conger up memories of sitting by the fire, drinking winter warm
ers and spending time with friends and family. Those same holiday memories also tie strongly into some of our favorite flavors and aromas of the season. One classic combination that stands out for me around the holidays is the traditional Chocolate Orange that so many of us have found in our stockings over the years.
For this winter inspired beer cocktail I have combined Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout, Van Gogh Dutch Chocolate Vodka, and Combier Orange Liqueur in a rich and velvety take on a classic Christmas tradition.
