25 Days of Christmas Cocktails, Day 15: Christmas Orange

A bit like the foil-wrapped chocolate oranges that Santa used to leave in your stocking every year, but all grown up.

Christmas Orange
1 ½ oz. reposado tequila
½ oz. Grand Marnier
¼ oz. crème de cacao
¾ oz. horchata (made from scratch, or purchased at Mexican shops or restaurants)
1 whole egg (pasteurized if you like)
Tools: shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Glass: rocks glass
Garnish: orange wheel

Add all ingredients to an ice-filled shaker. Shake vigorously and double strain into a rocks glass. Garnish.
