Saffron provides a beautiful color and distinctive flavor to this refreshing and festive drink from chef Vikas Khanna's "Flavors First."
Bring milk to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low and add almonds, saffron, cardamom, and honey. Simmer, stirring, until all the ingredients are well combined, about 5 minutes. Serve hot, garnished with saffron.
