Continuing with the trend of recognizing less known holidays, today I'd like to acknowledge National Gingerbread Day. Now, one might wonder how to celebrate gingerbread; I say, with a latte! In honor of this special day, the seasoned baristas here at Whole Latte Love have whipped up just the recipe for the occasion.

For the Gingerbread Latte You're Going to Need:

  • 1 Shot of Espresso
  • 1 tsp. of Gingerbread Syrup
  • 1 tsp. of Vanilla Syrup
  • 6oz of Steamed Milk
  • Whipped Cream
  • Cinnamon or Nutmeg to Garnish  

Start by brewing your shot, and if you've got a heat exchanger machine, feel free to start steaming your milk too. When you're done brewing, add your espresso to your glass and measure out 1 tsp. of gingerbread syrup and 1 tsp. of vanilla syrup . Combine the syrup with the espresso. Now it's time to add your 6oz of steamed milk. Top with whipped cream, garnish with cinnamon and nutmeg, and enjoy!
