Bar Cart 101: Chocolate Pairs With Bourbon for a Warm Winter Cocktail (8 photos)

As the founder of Badminton Chocolate, I love using chocolate as an ingredient. Here’s a winter cocktail that combines homemade chocolate syrup with bourbon whiskey. You start by making the syrup, then add cream, a half-ounce of bourbon and milk. (Going a little light on the amount of bourbon creates a nice balance of flavors.) Top with more whipped cream and marshmallows, and you’re set to indulge.

Chocolate Syrup

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups water
  • 1½ cups local honey
  • ¾ cup organic raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure Madagascar vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon cardamom powder
  • Dash of sea salt

1. Bring the water to a boil. Add the honey, lower the heat to medium-high and stir constantly until the honey has dissolved. Be careful that the honey doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan and burn.

2. Further lower the temperature to medium-low and add the raw cacao powder while whisking the mixture. Whisk constantly at a low boil for 5 to 6 minutes, smoothing out all the lumps and making sure the mixture doesn’t boil over. The longer the cooking time, the thicker the syrup will be.

3. Remove from heat and store in an airtight container for up to a month.

4 Tips for Designing a Wildlife-Friendly Small Garden (5 photos)

Let’s say you have a 100- to 200-square-foot area to work with, and you want to keep the plants under 4 feet tall so as not to visually overwhelm the space and your neighbors. You want it to look good, as though it has a designed purpose, but you also want it to help the environment, from pollinators to birds.

1. Keep it simple but plant it thick. Accept your garden’s limitations and work with them by keeping plantings simple. It’s going to look chaotic if you have 30 plant species in 100 square feet. Instead, choose 10 to 12 species, or fewer, and try to have two or three of them be a grass or sedge.

Grasses and sedges provide winter shelter and nesting material for birds, and they tend to outcompete weeds with their fibrous root systems and soil-shading nature. These will become your base layer that ties everything together in a cohesive way. Match them to your soil, light conditions and ecoregion for best long-term performance. Grasses generally need full sun, whereas sedges are more adaptable.

Sideoats grama (Bouteloua curtipendula, USDA zones 3 to 9; find your zone), prairie dropseed (Sporobolus heterolepis, zones 3 to 8), little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium, zones 2a to 9b) and sedges like Sprengel’s sedge (Carex sprengelii, zones 3 to 5) or Muskingum sedge (C. muskingumensis, zones 4 to 9), also called palm sedge, are good options.

Plants shown: Little bluestem, hairy grama (Bouteloua hirsuta), blue grama (B. gracilis), sideoats grama and prairie dropseed
