2 cups of apple cider
1 orange, thinly sliced

Lemon Balm Feelin' Good Eggnog
Love a good eggnog during the holidays? Give this traditional drink a boost with the emotionally balancing qualities of Lemon Balm Tincture and put your feet up and relax!
2 cups whole milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
3 large egg yolks
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 dropperfuls Lemon Balm Tincture
Cinnamon sticks for garnish (optional)
Instructions: In a large saucepan, combine milk, half of the sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Warm over medium heat until it is steaming but not boiling. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg yolks and the remaining sugar until creamy and well-combined. Gradually add about a cup of the hot milk mixture to the egg yolks, whisking constantly to temper the eggs. This prevents them from cooking upon direct contact with the hot milk. Pour the tempered egg yolk mixture back into the saucepan with the rest of the hot milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens slightly (it should be able to coat the back of a spoon). Remove from heat and strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl to remove any potential lumps. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla extract. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Once cooled, pour into two mugs and add two dropperfuls of Lemon Balm Tincture into both. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight, before serving. Serve chilled, garnished with a cinnamon stick if desired.
