Vanilla Ginger Latte Recipe

This was the perfect warm drink recipe for a cold winter day in Michigan – but I suspect it tastes just as good in warmer regions, too! I created this recipe when I needed a little spin on my go-to favorite drink: the vanilla latte. All it takes is a bit of ground ginger to give this drink a kick!

Serves two.

Ingredients

– 4 ounces brewed espresso or strongly brewed dark roast coffee

– 1/2 cup milk, soy milk, or other milk subsitute

– 1/4 cup water

– 1/4 cup sugar

– 2 tsp vanilla extract

– 1/4 tsp ground ginger

Directions

Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a small sauce pan, stirring often.

When syrup has reached a rolling boil, add vanilla and ginger, continuing to stir.

Let mixture boil for another minute – this allows the alcohol in the extract to burn off. Remove from heat

Brew your espresso or strong coffee. Steam and froth milk or milk substitute. Pour espresso into a mug, followed by syrup, then milk

Spoon the leftover foam onto the top of the drink. Enjoy!
