This drink is a very special one for me. It was the very first drink I shot and posted on my instragram channel @welcometomybar on Valentine's Day in 2017. What makes it even more special was that it was originally intended simply as an after dinner dessert drink to round off a romantic Valentine's dinner with my fiancée (now wife). Little did I know that it would have led me to dive into content creation and building an Instagram channel dedicated to drinks coming from my home bar... Life's funny at times!
Arctic Orange Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

- 1.7 oz / 50 ml Whisky Cream Liqueur
- 0.8 oz / 20 ml Dry Curaçao
- 1 Scoop ice cream (cream or vanilla will do)
- 2.5 oz / 75 ml Milk
- Cocoa powder
- Orange peel (optional but recommended)

METHOD:

Add all ingredients to a shaker with some ice and shake. Strain in a coupe glass and garnish with some cocoa powder. If you want to go all in with the romanticism you can cutout a heart shape from a piece of paper and use the paper as a stencil for the cocoa powder garnish, like in the above photo.

Tip: You can express the oils from an orange peel on the rim and on the drink to give a stronger hint of orange.

Tip 2: If you want to up the chocolate taste you can also rim the coupe glass with chocolate syrup and crushed chocolate cookies (Oreos can work), just like I did below.
