This is a subtle, luxurious caffeine-free hot drink. It’s great for just before bed and unlike most pre-bed beverages, is fairly low energy and very low carbohydrate. Organic versions of all these ingredients are readily available.

Two drops of pure strawberry essence
Two drops of pure rose water or about five fresh rose petals (remove after steeping)
One drop of cochineal extract (optional, it just makes the milk a pretty colour)
