  • 3/4 oz Amaretto
  • 3/4 oz Grand Marnier
  • Pot of Earl Grey tea
  • Fresh Orange Slice



This refreshing, hot cocktail tastes remarkably like fresh blueberries, and is always a favorite on cold nights next to a warm fire. Pour the Grand Marnier and Amaretto into a brandy snifter, then fill the snifter about 2/3 full with hot Earl Grey tea.
Garnish each snifter with a fresh slice of orange.
