The Chocolate Orange

Behind one of my Boutique-y Gin Advent Calendar doors I was rather excited to find a wee dram of Chocolate Orange Gin.  Yup, you heard right, Chocolate Orange Gin.  This was calling out to be used in a cocktail.  The advent serving suggestion on the “That Boutique-y Gin Company” website was a Brunch Martini, but as Teacher Gin buddy and I were having a very special Christmas Cocktail Gin Day, we decided to have a bit of an experiment of our own and this is what we came up with.
