Starbucks Gingerbread Latte copycat

I know, I know, it is a terrible cliché, but I like the Gingerbread latte season in Starbucks. Sue me!

Maybe it is because I have great memories that taste like this coffee - 2011, winter time and living is easy. I'm going to the job which I love, it is a blizzard in the center of the city, and life has an American Christmas romcom aesthetics.

Maybe. Doesn't matter.

The only thing which is matters now is that I love Gingerbread Latte from Starbucks, but there is no Starbucks in my town.

But girls can do anything, so here it is - a recipe for the perfect Starbucks Gingerbread Latte сopycat!

Gingerbread syrup - ingredients

The secret of the drink is the gingerbread syrup.

To make it at home, you will need:

- brown sugar

- molasses

- gingerbread spices. There is a plenty of them in the supermarket, but you can make it yourself if you want. To do it you have to mix together ground cinnamon, cloves, ginger, coriander, anise, and quite a bit of allspice.

How to make a Gingerbread Latte?

First, let's prepare the syrup. Pour 200 ml of water into a saucepan, add a tablespoon of spices and turn on the stove. When the water begins to boil slightly, dissolve in it 5 tablespoons of brown sugar and one and a half - of molasses. Let it simmer while stirring for about 5 minutes. Then leave to cool and pour into a jar for syrup through a strainer.

Important - while you cook it, the aroma will not be very similar to the one you need for your coffee. This is normal. It bothered me a lot at first because when it boils the smell of molasses is very dominant. But after your latte is ready it will be the one we chased.

The Gingerbread Latte itself is prepared easily - you should put a tablespoon of syrup into espresso or another plain coffee of your choice, add warm milk, and garnish with a cloud of whipped cream and a dash of spices on top.
