BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO CREATE YOUR OWN SUNSHINE
I know it has been around for a few winter seasons now but I was in Starbucks this snowy morning, decided to be adventurous and try something else other than my usual Caramel Macchiato. I thus opted for and discovered the yumminess that is the Starbucks Gingerbread Latte. YUM! It tastes like a warm, freshly baked gingerbread cookie only, with added creaminess.
As the website will tell you, it consists of an espresso shot with steamed milk and gingerbread flavoured syrup. It is topped with sweetened whipped cream and nutmeg which melts into the drink to give it a smooth and rich texture.
*Spoiler alert* – The drink is packed with calories so watch out! It is however a definite satisfactory and delicious treat so any guilty conscious will be wiped away. That little dose of loveliness in the morning put a surprising smile on my face and prepared me for the day. It is also wrapped in the adorable red Starbucks seasonal cups which slowly contributes to an approaching ‘holiday spirit’, especially as winter arrives with a vengeance.
Enjoy the yumminess and if ever, there are some simple online recipes to follow for a treat at home!
