Peppermint Latte

I guess it’s the cooler weather that has been making me crave coffee everyday. During the summer, I can’t go near the stuff, but in cooler temperatures, I just have to have it, and lattes are my weakness. I have been making them at home and adding all the delicious flavors of the season, like this peppermint latte. This is another super simple latter simply flavored with a little peppermint extract and a candy cane. It couldn’t be simpler, and is way better and much less expensive than running to Starbucks.

The candy canes featured are organic from Whole Foods. I just love their color.

Peppermint Latte


2 shots espresso or strong coffee
1 cup milk
a few drops of peppermint extract or 1 tablespoon creme de menthe or 1 tablespoon peppermint schnapps

1. Brew coffee. Add milk to a cup to steam on espresso machine, or to a saucepan to heat on the stove-top, or heat in a coffee mug in the microwave.

2. Add espresso and milk to a coffee mug. Add peppermint extract. Top with whipped cream if desired an add a candy cane.
