For those wanting to sleep soundly and deeply, relaxing nighttime drinks have been touted as a surefire way to dream peacefully. Author Anni Daulter’s new cookbook Moon Milk: Easy Recipes for Peaceful Sleep will have you slumbering in no time with over fifty recipes for calming beverages to help close out the day. Many of the adaptogens you’ll stir in, such as ginseng, turmeric, and cardamom, are shown to reduce stress, relieve fatigue, and bring calmness and peace.
While most of the beautiful beverages are warm drinks made with nondairy or dairy milks, there are recipes for cool elixirs, and options for using teas and flavored waters. There is a chapter dedicated to drinks using alcohol, but you can add spirits to any of the drinks.
