Make this Drink: Bourbon Hot Chocolate from Tilth

Seattle is crazy cold right now. Warm up with bliss-inducing blend of Theo Chocolate, milk, and whiskey.

December 6, 2009

Um, have you seen the weather forecast? Below 40 degrees through Thursday. You’re going to need this recipe for a bourbon hot chocolate (perhaps the best three words in the English language after “wine and cheese”) which comes courtesy of Tilth.

Tilth's Bourbon Hot Chocolate

Serves 1

  • 1½ cups whole milk
  • 2 cardamom pods, roughly chopped
  • 3 ounces Theo dark chocolate
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 ounce bourbon (Tilth suggests Woodford Reserve)
  • Marshmallows

Simmer milk and cardamom over medium-low heat for about 20 minutes. Remove cardamom. Whisk in the chocolate an ounce at a time. If the chocolate flavor isn’t intense enough, add more chocolate pieces to taste. Add a pinch of salt to heighten the flavor. Add the bourbon to a mug and top with the hot chocolate. Serve with marshmallows on top.
