Preparing as an herbal hot chocolate:
There are a couple ways you can prepare an herbal chocolate. In the first, you can make an infusion that you combine with a milk or milk alternative that has been warmed with cacao powder (on the stovetop), then sweeten as needed. Another way is to infuse the herbs and cacao powder (or mix) together.

Preparing as an herbal wine:
There are a couple of ways you can prepare an herbal wine with these herbs. The first would be soaking the wine with the herbs. Pour out an ounce of wine (drink it!) and then place the herbs in the bottle. Cork it/screw it closed and place in a cool dark spot for two weeks. Strain when serving. You can combine as needed to make the drink to your taste. You can also lightly mull a wine with these herbs on low heat. Try to keep the lid on to avoid losing all the volatile oils.
