orange mochacinno

I think I jinxed the weather here.

I brought out our patio furniture a couple weeks ago and enjoyed one glorious weekend out of them and now it's payback. We've had blizzard warnings all weekend long and we've been dumped with a bunch of snow. I can't even see my lounge chairs in my yard as they are covered under a pile of snow. Merry Christmas!

So when your handed lemons oranges, make lemon-aid an orange mochacinno!

I love orange and chocolate together and I enjoyed this drink right down to the last drop. I have to admit, I also licked the sides of the glass to get every last bit of chocolatey-orange foam too. That's how much I liked this :)
