London Fogs are staples of any self-respecting coffee shop, but a little known fact is that they are cheap to make. With the weather being as undecided as it is, why not curl up with a deliciously easy homemade drink?


1 cup brewed earl grey tea (use 1-2 bags of tea)

1/2 cup milk (any kind)

Sugar (to taste)

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Pinch of lavender (optional, but adds a nice, light floral taste)


1. On stovetop, heat desired amount of milk on medium low heat until steaming. Whisk briskly. Set aside.

2. Brew tea with lavender. Strain, remove tea bag, and combine with steamed milk. Add vanilla and sugar to taste.
