If you, like me, are spending today hiding away in a blanket fort with adorable animals and reading/movies unrelated to the outside world (I voted early this morning; I hope everyone else in the US has or plans to as well) may I offer a recipe?
I’d intended to make cocoa this afternoon, but it felt too heavy, so I pulled this recipe out, tweaked it a smidge, and came up with a nice – and somewhat lighter – warm drink. Also very simple. You can even just use the microwave to heat the milk first if you prefer.
1 mug milk
1 tablespoon honey
6 drops vanilla extract
4 drops orange extract
2 dashes cinnamon
1 dash ground cloves
Heat the milk until nearly bubbling, then stir in honey and extracts. Once fully incorporated (a few moments’ stirring) remove from heat and pour into mug. Sprinkle with cinnamon and cloves. Enjoy!
