Gingerbread Latte – A Beautiful Mess


There may be nothing better this time of year than a gingerbread latte. The bold flavors of gingerbread cookies with molasses and spices paired with a creamy latte are a huge treat.

In this post, I’ll share with you my favorite gingerbread latte recipe, which includes homemade syrup. Bonus points if you add a little gingerbread man when serving.

ingredients

I love adding whipped cream to this latte recipe, but it’s optional.

First, prepare the ginger syrup. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, water, molasses, ginger, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves completely. Before the mixture boils, remove it from the heat and leave it to cool. Store the syrup in an airtight container. Although it is not necessary to refrigerate the syrup, I usually store it in my house just to keep it fresher longer.

Prepare espresso. Add syrup and espresso to the cup.

Steam and froth the milk until it is hot and frothy. If your espresso machine has a frother wand, you can use that, or you can use a Milk foam Or even do it with a hand mixer on the stove.

Pour the hot milk and foam over the espresso and drink. Add whipped cream if using.

Home espresso machines

We’ve tried many espresso makers over the years, and here are our favorites at different price points and skill levels:

  • Automatic espresso machine for cafe – My current device. It uses any whole beans, so if you use high quality beans, you will get a high quality espresso. It automatically makes espresso shots (no barista skills required) and includes a milk frother wand to heat and froth the milk. We have used this machine almost every day since we got it seven months ago and we love it! Comes in three colors.
  • Stovetop espresso – This is the cheapest way to make espresso at home. It is labor intensive and you will also need a way to grind your beans to get the best results. But this is a classic method that works great when done well.
  • Breville Barista Touch -We bought this for a good friend as a wedding gift once and they said they loved it. It’s a sophisticated machine that will need some barista skills to operate, but it’s an excellent home espresso machine.
  • Nespresso Vertuo – For those who want an espresso maker that uses pods, this is my favorite. Depending on the capsule you use, it can make espresso or coffee.

Notes

You can use any percentage of milk or milk substitute for this latte. Keep in mind that some milk alternatives will not foam or froth like dairy milk. But it will still be delicious.
Although it is not necessary to refrigerate the syrup, I usually store it in my house just to keep it fresher longer.
