But, as the snow starts to fall, holiday drink ideas are sweeping the internet by storm. Join us in covering one of our favorites and then let us know yours on Instagram or Twitter!
Let’s Get to Action
A classic for those who can’t seem to decide between either salty or sweet, the salted caramel mocha latte is undoubtedly a treat. Don’t hold yourself back with the same old traditional recipes! Now is the time of the year to get extra-festive.
- 1 Cup of Strong-Brewed Coffee or 2 Shots of Espresso
- 2 Tbsp of Caramel Syrup
- 1 Cup of Milk (or milk substitute)
- 2 Tbsp of Sweetener (sugar, brown sugar, honey, etc.)
- 1 Tbsp of Cocoa Powder
- Caramel Sauce* for drizzling
- Whipped Cream
- ⅛ Tsp of Sea Salt
Have that espresso all brewed up and get ready to make some magic. Either one or two shots work, depending on how strong you’re expecting things.
With a generic saucepan, warm up the milk over medium heat. Use a whisk to make sure it becomes a steamy froth.
Break out a mug and pour in your previously brewed espresso. Combine that cocoa powder, sweetener, and some caramel syrup until everything combines smoothly & dissolves completely.
Top it off with your frothed milk and add whipped cream with a bit of a caramel drizzle (if your feeling fancy). To finish things off, don’t forget to add a pinch of salt!
Savory & sweet; the perfect holiday drink idea! Stay warm, my friends.
