Instructions For Your Gingerbread Latte
1. Make some coffee. I have an amazing recommendation here if you’re looking to impress your guests.
2. Heat up your milk on the stove top until it’s steamed, then use an immersion blender or wire whisk to froth the steamed milk.
Alternatively, if you have a french press you can warm the milk up in the microwave, then pour it into your french press and plunge until you have the desired level of frothy milk. (See below for video).
3. Add the sugar to your mug.
4. Add the Tornai Gingerbread syrup I told you about.
4. Add the coffee and stir all the ingredients together so they dissolve and blend.
5. Now, slowly stir as you add the milk you just frothed on top of the coffee.
6. To finish it off, add a dab of whipped cream and dash of the ground cloves over top. If you would like, now is the time to add sprinkles.
