Here's how to make it:
In a regular drinking glass, pour in soy milk or almond milk. Sorry, cows won't work here. Dairy doesn't have the right flavor.
Add a jigger or two of pure vanilla extract AND rum flavoring. The latter is not optional.
Add reckless amounts of the following: cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper. Yes, pepper. Gives it an extra kick.
Stir, and watch the spices whirl away like a Sufi master.
Now, add several squirts of honey --at least a teaspoon, more if you prefer.
Finally, add several ice cubes, to make the milk extra cold, and stir a third time, to mix everything together in deep, frigid-y goodness. Note: The honey and spices tend to coagulate in places. Bonus!
Drink up ---how delightful ---and sludgy!
Alternatives: I made this so often I ran out of cardamom. I found I had a lot of pumpkin pie spice on hand, since I never make pumpkin pies, and don't know why the hell I bought it in the first place, so I used that instead. Tasted great ---almost like an egg nog.
Or you could just use a combo of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Or get crazy and toss some marjoram in there. (Not really).
