It’s the holiday season and festive drinks are one of the best parts! Instead of spending money on fancy coffees that also pack a lot of calories in one drink, making your own can be less heavy, cheaper and faster!
I happen to have a milk frother for making lattes, but instead of that you can use whip cream on top or skip the milk/cream on top in general.
The gingerbread syrup is adapted from this one by Billy on All Recipes.
1 cup of water
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon ginger – it is pretty intense and spicy.
2 cinnamon sticks + 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Combine sugar, water and all of the spices in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil then let simmer for 25 minutes. Once it has simmered, take cinnamon sticks out and let the syrup cool. Enjoy!
Add to coffee, or to the cream before frothing, top with a bit of cinnamon for decoration! I put wayyy too much cinnamon on my coffee in the picture and ended up breathing it in and coughing for a while after haha.
