Having just snuggled down in front of the fire with favourite witchypoo brew, I can't help but to wonder what signature concoctions other people make and what they're for. I'm about to beging tonight's stint of wrestling with an arduous and frustrating translation task so this drink is intended to sharpen my wits while still being a bit cosy, making me feel less hard done by. Here it is:
A pod of cardamon A "segment" of star anise A few black pepper corns A few strands of saffron (the above given a little bang with pestle and mortar) A quick grate of nutmeg
Into a mug, let steep in hot water, then top up with milk. Honey optional.
Anyone else have one to share? nothing like procrastinating on MN
