Café à l’Orange

4Ahh the inevitable aftermath of having a power outage. Make a caffeinated and highly delicious smoothie! After the power comes back on of course… though I kept the candles! Today I bring to you the Café à l’Orange, a smoothie based on the cocktail. Traditionally this would use an orange liqueur – I didn’t use one but I’m sure sloshing some Cointreau in there would make a very good smoothie indeed.
