Hot drinks recipes

Hello and welcome to blogmas day 6 where I will be going through the recipes to the 3 hot drinks mentioned in yesterday's post.

  1. Gingerbread latte
  • Put 2 heaped teaspoons of coffee granules into a caffetiere, followed by 1/2 tsp of ground ginger, and a sprinkle of allspice
  • Fill the caffetiere with hot water until there is enough for your mug
  • Leave for 10 minutes (or less depending on your preferred strength) before plunging the caffetiere
  • Pour the coffee into a mug with your chosen amount of milk and sugar or syrup

Alternatively, you could just be lazy like me and make a coffee with some 'Monin' gingerbread syrup.

  1. The ultimate hot chocolate
  • Begin by filling your mug with milk and warming it up to your chosen hot temperature
  • Gradually mix 2 heaped teaspoonfuls of hot chocolate powder into the drink until smoothly dissolved (alternatively you could melt cooking chocolate into the milk using a pan)
  • For extra pazazz you could add a dash peppermint, vanilla or caramel syrup
  • Top it off with a big dollop of whipped cream, a sprinkle of chocolate and a few mini marshmallows or even a candy cane!

  • Begin with a pre-made coffee
  • In a separate cup, mix hot milk with golden or caramel syrup and a pinch of salt and stir until smooth
  • Pour the milk concoction into the coffee and top with foamy milk and a pretzel or fudge pieces
