  • 8 ounces sliced or slivered almonds
  • 4 cups milk
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 shots amaretto (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread almonds in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, and toast until golden and fragrant, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool, and roughly chop.

  2. Place almonds and milk in a medium saucepan; cook over medium heat just until milk begins to steam, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat; let steep, covered, about 30 minutes.

  3. Strain milk mixture into a warmed pitcher or another saucepan; stir in honey until combined. Divide among four coffee cups; add a shot of amaretto, if using, to each. Serve immediately.
