Gingerbread Latte

Mi Casa’s Salted Caramel Flavoured Coffee carries caramelised notes and biscuity aroma. You can taste hints of vanilla custard, caramel and almonds. It’s as though you are eating gingerbread cake on Christmas morning!

This Gingerbread Latte comprises a shot of Mi Casa’s Flavoured coffee and delicious spices every kitchen cupboard will have.

Here’s what you will need:

  • 40ml shot of espresso 
  • ½ cup steamed milk 
  • 1 tbs molasses or maple syrup or honey (your preference)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract 
  • ½ tsp freshly ground ginger 
  • A pinch of nutmeg

In your cup of choice, pour and mix a 40ml shot of espresso with molasses, vanilla extract, and ground ginger. Pour in steamed milk.

Now, for the grand finale — sprinkle some nutmeg on top of the heated/frothy milk. The toasty, nutty nuances make the drink so delicious.
