  1. Combine milks, maple syrup, and lavender in a small pot or microwavable mug. Heat to a low simmer over the stove or 1.5–2 minutes in the microwave (or until very hot.) Remove from heat and let steep for 2-3 minutes. If you want a stronger lavender taste, use the back of a fork to mash the lavender against the side of the pot/mug in the milk. Strain milk though a mesh sieve to catch all the lavender and discard remaining buds.
  2. Meanwhile, combine chopped chocolate, cocoa, and pinch of salt in a mug. Pour a couple of tablespoons of hot milk into the chocolate and mix until smooth. Use a Milk Frother or hand blender to froth remaining hot milk. Pour into the chocolate mixture and stir to combine. Makes one serving.
