Thank goodness I don’t have to make any New Year’s resolutions yet. Because this recipe popped up on my radar this week, and I think I will drink my fill before I need to make some serious dietary adjustments for the New Year.
Goldener Hirsch is one of those tucked-away restaurants at Silver Lake Village in Deer Valley that is not to be missed. Specializing in some serious aprés, their cocktail list is impressive, with unique hot drinks along with innovative cocktails and a fabulous wine list.
Warm up at The Goldener Hirsch this winter season or try making this amazing bacon bourbon hot chocolate at home (recipe below). Don’t miss sharing a soft pretzel over a hot toddy in this cozy Bavarian decorated restaurant.
- 7 ounces hot chocolate
- 1.5 ounces Maker's Mark Bourbon
- .5 ounces Frangelico hazelnut liqueur
- whipped cream
- .5 teaspoon crumbled crispy bacon
- Combine the warm hot chocolate, Maker's Mark and Frangelico and pour into a wine glass.
- Finish with whipped cream.
- Garnish with bacon and brittle.
Note: Goldener Hirsch makes their version of this warm delicacy using Amano Artisan Chocolate, a local chocolate purveyor from Orem. Substitute a chocolate covered pretzel for their house-made hazelnut bacon brittle garnish.
