Hansel and Gretel Gingerbread Latte

Skip the coffee house and make your own gingerbread latte at home. This Hansel and Gretel Gingerbread Latte uses a homemade gingerbread spice syrup that is easy to make and adds the perfect amount of spices to your coffee drinks.
Servings: 2 lattes


For the Gingerbread Syrup:

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla

For the latte:

  • 2 cups (6 oz each) strongly brewed coffee
  • 1 cup milk, steamed
  • whipped cream, optional


For the Gingerbread Syrup:

  • In a small saucepan, combine the water, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and cloves. Give it a stir. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally so the sugar dissolves.
  • Once it comes to a boil, lower heat slightly and simmer until the syrup has thickened. This will take about 15-20 minutes. Be sure to stir the syrup occasionally.
  • Once the syrup has thickened, remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Let cool and pour into a glass jar. Store in refrigerator up to two weeks.
  • To use in lattes, use about 3/4 ounce per 6 oz of hot coffee.

To make latte:

  • Pour coffee into two mugs, add 3/4 ounce of gingerbread syrup into each mug. Stir.
  • Add steamed milk (about 1/2 cup per mug) and top with whipped cream, if desired.
