Warm and calming, Golden Milk is traditionally drank before going to bed. Black pepper, which contains peperine, is added to the drink to help the body better absorb the curcumin in the turmeric.
The special ingredient in this refreshing drink is orange flower water (sometimes called orange blossom water). This distilled essence of orange blossom can be purchased in most well-stocked specialty grocery stores. Most orange blossom water comes from the south of France and from the Levant.
For an adult twist, serve with vodka or gin.
Anna has made chai for winter and autumn events for years–she just has a magic touch with it. We managed to tickle it out of her. Make up a large batch of the chai (leaving out the honey and milk) and store it in your fridge to reheat for daily use or for your next event. Unlike store bought chai teas, you can control the sweetness here.
