As the holidays come around, so too does this incredible gingerbread latte from Starbucks. Into the coffee house's basic latte recipe go a few pumps of special gingerbread-flavored syrup, and we soon experience the combined sensation of munching on a gingerbread cookie while sipping hot, milky java. Nice. To re-create the experience at home for the holidays at mere fraction of the cost of the real thing, all we have to do is make our own gingerbread syrup with a few common ingredients. When the syrup is done, simply brew some espresso in your espresso machine, steam some hot milk, and throw it all in a cup. Top off your latte with whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg as they do at the store, and you'll fool anyone with this hot little clone. By the way, this Starbucks gingerbread latte recipe is for a single grande-size latte but you'll have enough syrup for as many as seven drinks.

I love Gingerbread Lattes from Starbucks. It is the only sweetened drink that I like at all. I usually prefer a simple espresso or cappuccino to sugary drinks but the Gingerbread drink is the exception. This recipe hits all the right notes. We take our espresso pretty seriously around here. And since I think my espresso is better than Starbucks, naturally the final product would be better too.
