With Thanksgiving over, I’m now in December baking mode. DH wanted to start of the December treats with something ginger. And my first thought was a homemade ginger latte, inspired by the Starbucks beverage.
You can really taste the ginger and the molasses in this drink. The coffee flavor is a little light though. Still, it’s easy to make at home, saves me a couple of bucks and satisfies my cravings for a ginger latte.
1 cup milk
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
1 tbsp molasses
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2-3 tbsp sugar to taste
Use an extra large mug that holds approximately 2 cups of liquid. Brew coffee. Bring milk to a boil in small saucepan on stove. Add in coffee, and remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Pour into cup.Top with whipped cream if desired.
