Mother's Milk (Non-Alcoholic)

A nice nightcap for the non-drinker. Can't sleep, this works as well as warm milk for insomnia. I think because it is soothing, not because it has any sedative effect, Mother's Milk comes across as a comforting and familiar flavor.

I had trouble with getting the honey to dissolve in cold milk. Try heating the honey in the microwave for ten seconds just to help it move when you add it to the mixture. Alternatively, I like to have honey syrup around that I can just drop into drinks. Make this by taking honey and equal parts hot water and combining in a container with a lid and shaking. You'll have to use more of the syrup, but it pays off as a time-saver when you have lots of honey drinks to make.

Here's the recipe.
  • 4 oz. milk
  • 1/2 oz. honey (1 oz. honey syrup)
  • 1/4 oz. vanilla extract
  • grated nutmeg
Combine all ingredients except nutmeg in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled Old Fashioned glass. Sprinkle nutmeg on top.
