Golden Milk a.k.a. cafe Au lait—get it, Au :)

More often than not, I make this on top of the tail end of my morning coffee after it's gone cold. So the half cup of water represents the coffee, if you're not up for drinking twelve ounces of milk. But IRL I'm never going to measure out water and milk with a measuring cup to make a drink, I just fill the cup I'm going to drink out of with however much milk it holds and sometimes it has coffee in the bottom.

1/2 cup water
1 cup any milk, I use soy
1 tablespoon honey, or IRL a glug
1/2 tablespoon ground turmeric, or IRL a plastic spoon that lives by the spices
1/8 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon butter

Whisk the milk, honey, and spices in a saucepan over high heat. When the milk reaches a strong simmer, add the butter and keep whisking so that the butter is incorporated.
