Warm Maple Milk

If you put a little bit of maple syrup in your mouth and taste it very carefully, you might notice that the flavor carries hints of vanilla and caramel. Of course those flavors can help a slice of French toast or a stack of pancakes taste great, but did you ever think of stirring maple syrup into a drink? Try it! Mix some with a cup of warm milk for a gently sweet, steamy treat.
