It's time for the next installment of Christmas drinks. This week it's all about gingerbread. I was inspired by a comment left on the last post asking how you would make a gingerbread latte without using syrup. So after testing I found out that it's actually pretty simple. Who knew? It's a bit of a game changer too. It means that making syrup for hot drinks has just got really easy. Maybe this wasn't a good idea after all. I'm going to be the size of a house before Christmas haha!
Of course no gingerbread latte would be fit without mini gingerbread men. Although my assistant did keep stealing them from my flat lay. Thanks Edith!
I'd love to hear in the comments what drink you like me to create next!
- Serves One -
1 tablespoon black treacle
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Mini gingerbread men to decorate
1 cup of latte
1/2 tsp Demerara sugar
In a mug mix the treacle, spices and sugar.
Make a piping hot latte, I used a Dolce Gusto pod.
Pour the coffee over the treacle mix and stir until the syrup has melted into the coffee.
Take a clean cup (to serve in) and pour in the coffee, top with squirty cream and a mini gingerbread man.
