In homage to the season’s ever-popular Pumpkin Spiced Latte (and everything else, including hair!), we thought you autumnal gingers would like to have a go at making your own. Espresso blended with warming spices; cinnamon, nutmeg and clove and topped up with steamed milk and topped with delectably sweetened whipped cream.
Another warming drink to add to your repertoire for those cold wintery nights, brrrrrr…
1 cup of hot milk
2 tsp pumpkin spice syrup (we like Routin, available at a1coffee.co.uk)
1 shot espresso
1 tsp sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
Double cream (whipped with a little icing sugar to sweeten)
Good pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg
How to do it:
1. Warm your milk with the cinnamon, nutmeg and clove and leave to infuse for 5-10 minutes.
2. Remove the clove, and pour into a blender with the vanilla extract and sugar and blend until nice and frothy.
3. Pour the mixture onto your shot of espresso and pumpkin syrup to about 2/3 full.
4. Top with a huuuuge helping of whipped cream. You deserve it.
