Gingerbread Latte

Every season it seems like I become obsessed with different flavors. Christmas is no exception. Last year it was all about hot chocolate, the year before that was fudge, THIS year it is gingerbread!

Inspiration for this holiday latte recipe came from Starbucks. I noticed a sign for gingerbread latte which made me stop right in my tracks and do a double take. It was at that very moment that I KNEW I needed to create a homemade version.

Gingerbread Drink Syrup

Look at that drizzle!

This coffee all starts with a simple gingerbread syrup. This is where you’ll get that classic gingerbread flavor and it is so simple to make. The syrup will last two weeks if stored properly. That makes it a great gift to give to friends and family! Coffee drinkers will bow down to you and non-coffee peeps will adore this in their cocoa.

Ingredients for gingerbread latte recipe:

  • Granulated sugar
  • Ground ginger
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Cloves
  • Water
  • Vanilla extract
  • Coffee or espresso
  • Milk or cream

When you are ready to use you have two options:

  1. You can brave the espresso machine. Pour one shot into your cup. Stir a few tablespoons of syrup until dissolved. Top with warmed milk.
  2. Stir it right into a cup of extra strong coffee. Easy peasy. Top with a little whipped cream or dip biscotti.

Can you make a latte with regular coffee?

A typical household will not have an espresso machine, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make your own latte’s at home. You can substitute strong brewed coffee for espresso for a quick homemade latte. I suggest brewing your coffee with a French press or Aeropress to achieve a smooth strong flavor.

How to make a homemade gingerbread latte:

  1. Create a gingerbread syrup by combining sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves in a saucepan. Whisk in water. Heat to a boil and reduce the heat to simmer. Continue to cook on low for 10-15 minutes or until thickened.
  2. Pour the syrup into a sealed container and keep refrigerated until ready to use.
  3. When ready to create your latte, combine espresso or coffee with 2-3 tablespoons of your gingerbread syrup. Top with milk or cream and enjoy!
