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