The weather outside is not delightful. One of those good days for a spiced up coffee drink. This Cinnamon/Vanilla Latte gives a little something extra to help warm you up with gentle spiced flavoring.
When the delivery guy showed up with my cinnamon Torani coffee syrup I was so excited to make this recipe. I actually ordered it in for some other coffee drinks I’m designing that use alcohol.
Today is a work day, so I decided to use both Torani Cinnamon coffee syrup and Torani Vanilla Bean coffee syrup in a recipe. You can buy a cinnamon/vanilla coffee syrup from various syrup makers already, but I like the idea of handling each flavor separately.
When it comes to lattes I prefer a stronger coffee flavor, so this time I chose to use cold brew made with fresh roasted decaf Columbian Coffee. Using decaf allows me to make my drink at the 1:1 ratio for a stronger coffee flavor without endangering my caffeine count for the day.
(And I can have more than one. *smiles*)
Add in a bit of milk, some naughty whipped topping, my cinnamon based spice for coffee on top, and the result was pure heaven. I tell you. It did not last very long!
1 Tbsp Vanilla Bean Coffee Syrup
1 Tbsp Cinnamon Coffee Syrup
1 cup of hot coffee (I used 1/2 cup cold brew concentrate with 1/2 cup of water)
Milk to taste
Cinnamon Based Spice (a mix of ancho chili pepper, cinnamon, paprika, cayenne, and sugar)
Adjust ingredients to your preferences. Some like more coffee syrup in their coffee than I do. My drinks tend to use the smallest amount to get the flavor out of them and keep the calories down.
