If you feel like this and the rain/cold/monsoon isn’t letting up, follow these easy instructions, sit back, let it pass and hang loose.
Gather the following. If you’re earthquake prepared you might as well be rainy day prepared.
3 tea bags, whatever, 2 bayleaves, small chunk of nutmeg, 1/2 stick cinnamon, 2 cloves, 7 pepper corns, tsp cumin seeds, tsp coriander seeds and some sugar. Pulse in your coffee grinder or use powdered sawdust, I mean powdered spice.
Melt a tab of butter in a pot. Grate a stick of ginger and lemon grass into the mess. Add your spices or dust and fill with 1 qt water. Simmer and reduce by 25% for 20 minutes. You’ll know when it looks dark and awesome.
Add some cream or powdered milk and strain into your mug.
Sit back and sip your hand crafted spicy brew. Feel accomplished, brave and happy. Starbucks can’t even come close.
PS. Go crazy with the ginger and the whole recipe. It may take a few tries but once you get it down, it WILL be your all time best thing to make for those necessary occasions.
- Happy Holidays.
