Cascara Fog

1 cup cascara tea
1/2 cup whole milk (or similar)
1 Tbsp of Jo Sno Syrup (Vanilla Black Pepper is my favorite)

In a medium-size saucepan, bring the milk and syrup to a slight boil (the sides of the milk will begin to bubble), stirring often. Once the sides of the milk begin to bubble, remove the pan from heat. Using an immersion blender (this is the trick to a frothy homemade latte), blend the milk until it’s frothy.

Pour cascara tea in a mug. Slowly add the warm, frothy milk to the tea. Serve warm.
