Hot Lavender Milk

Hot Lavender Milk

Sometimes your path serendipitously leads you to things you weren’t looking for. About two weeks ago I stopped at the grocery store to pick up some mint to garnish my granita. There wasn’t any left. Amid the sage, tarragon, thyme, and many other herbs, lavender seemed the one that would be most suitable for garnishing a dessert.

After using a couple of sprigs for garnish, I was left with an entire bunch of heady organic lavender with fresh, vibrant green leaves. Faithful to my old time motto “rien ne se perd, tout se transforme”, I refused to let the lavender go to waste and transformed it into a soothing, uplifting cup of relaxation. The aroma put me right to sleep.

  • 3 fresh lavender sprigs (available at Whole Foods)

Add the lavender sprigs to the hot milk. Let it steep for 5 to 7 minutes. Discard the lavender. Sweeten with honey. Enjoy!
