  Gingerbread Latte Recipe!
What's Not-ta-like about a Gingerbread Latte!
Yes in deed Starbucks sales them, the local coffee shop in the mall sales them- And my kitchen at home has them too! Oh yes, Gingerbread Latte is a favorite coffee drink for many people. It's a drink that reminds me of the fall season, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas all rolled up in one. I guess that's because I drink it during these holidays more than the any other time of the year; come to think of it, these spices are also used the most during this time of the year as well. If you love the taste of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg or vanilla; then you will love this hot coffee drink. And Oooo yes! You can't drink it without whipped cream and gingerbread cookies either!

Now let's talk about the recipe. The Internet has many different ones that vary slightly. Many of them call for gingerbread flavored syrup but you need to know that this syrup is seasonal in many markets. But don't let that scare you. You can still make delicious gingerbread lattes by making your own homemade syrup. Recipes Below-
If you can't find the syrup at your market and you don't have the time to make it yourself, you can also order it from several online sources.
