i've actually made this twice. First time i made it with 1 oz. dark jamaican rum (i had no grand marnier) which was awesome, but still needed more liquor. Second time i made it with the 2 oz. of grand marnier and, although good, was a little too much liquor for me. so maybe i will just go to 1-1/2 oz. haha....thanks for such a wonderful idea!
WOW, this is wonderful! I used 1/2 an oz of the Grand Marnier, which for me imparted a very nice flavor without without putting me back to sleep for the morning! I made my cocoa using 1 1/2 cups of skim milk, 1 1/2 Tbsp of Double Dutch cocoa and Splenda to taste and topped it with light Cool Whip from a can. The orange flavor adds a real spark of the special to this. It would be ideal on a winter evening. Queenie, my dear, you have a winner here. YUMM.
