Mix amaretto and grand marnier in a brandy snifter or glass. Add hot tea to taste.
Ditch the Lipton's

Instead of "Orange Pekoe" tea (a trademark of Lipton's that means absolutely nothing), try better teas. After all, if you are going to splurge on the Amaretto and Grand Marnier, get some better tea. Any black tea, like Darjelling, is fine. Earl Grey, with its oil of bergamont, is a nice, fragrant option.

Can also be made using Earl Grey tea.
Garnish w/thinly sliced lemon

My Canadian cousins from the Vancouver, British Columbia area got me hooked on this drink last winter. They say that you MUST add one very thinly sliced piece of fresh lemon for this to be perfect. They are right! The lemon blends beautifully with the orange and almond, Eh? And it looks beautiful floating in the snifter.
More is better

Just dump equal parts of booze with orange pekoe. Forget about toddling or scones, this is finer than liquid gold.

Oh my god!! I so love this drink. I tried it last year..but couldn't remember what was in it. The amaretto and grand marnier is a little expensive...but well worth it. It goes down so smoothly.

You can also garnish with a slice of orange or a cinnamon stick....yum!
Best drink out there!

I love it best with a sugared rim, a cherry and a slice of orange or lemon. The fruit swimming around in the snifter just adds to the wonderful aroma and taste of this drink. Perfect for a chilly night and/or when you have a cold!
