This was our delicious good night drink today!<br/>I preapred this with the listed spices and for the orange zest I used self made oranged from Greek oranges (I mashed this in the mortar prior use). After boiling I removed the spices, sieved (pressed the mushed orange zest through the sieve) and added half quantity of the suggested rum.<br/>The taste was similar to the taste of some "Lebkuchen" (gingerbread without ginger). For a children version there is the possibility to sustitute real rum with rum-flavor.<br/>Made for Culinary Quest 2014. Made this again on 2015 for Beverage Anyone? Tag Game. The taste of zest and anise! Highly recommended!
Simply delicious! I admit to having imbibed the first glass without straining the drink first, and it was a little grainy. But the second, strained serving - OMG! I thought the zest was spot on. I did have to increase the chocolate a bit, but that was personal preference. It's been raining all day here, a bit odd for our summer, and this chocolate definitely hit the spot!

This was super delicious. The combination of spices adds such an exquisite taste to this hot chocolate drink, and it had such a smooth, creamy texture. The hint of the anise and touch of cinnamon is what made this so wonderful. It was a great drink to sip on, and I know we'll have this often. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Nancy's Pantry.

Oh Yum, I've been eyeing this recipe all tour and now I have finally made it. It was well worth the wait. What a terrific hot chocolate this was. So quick and easy to make, with a delicious flavor and a beautiful silky smooth texture. Wow, I love that you can taste all the spices, the orange and the rum. Did I say that this is probably the best hot chocolate that I have ever tried. Thank you so much my friend, for sharing a recipe that I will enjoy often this winter.

With Elmotoos hint I cut back the orange zest a bit, and it was perfect! I used 80 percent dark chocolate, and that matched exactly my preferences, soo good! Thanks for sharing :)
Absolutely delicious. I *would* cut back a bit on the orange zest because it overpowered the other flavors. I used 70% cacao bittersweet chocolate which was PERFECT. I think I'll make this over'n'over'n'over.... Made for Culinary Quest 2014/CCQ. Thank you!
Out Freaking Standing. Made this with bittersweet chocolate. I did the simmering and steeping parts while doing the dinner dishes and have been deeply enjoying it here at the computer. Not only is this a keeper it's going directly into my Favorites of 2014 book. Thank you so much Nancy. Made for PAC. Spring 2014. :D
