Whatever I'm doing this Christmas Eve, you can bet that I'll be sipping on one of these: a creamy, piping hot gingerbread latte.
Christmas Gingerbread Latte
- 1 mug semi-skimmed milk
- 1 and a half teaspoons instant espresso powder
- 15ml (1 tablespoon) gingerbread syrup
Fill a mug with milk, and place in the microwave for about 70 seconds, by which time it should be hot. Stir in the espresso powder and trickle in the gingerbread syrup. Stir everything to mix well. Add more gingerbread syrup if you want, to taste, but don't add any sugar; the syrup's sweet enough. If you want more heat, stick it back in the microwave for another 20 seconds. Sip carefully, preferably wearing the most Christmassy-looking jumper you can find.
