I honestly don’t know how we get through most of the year with the basic coffee flavors.
Honest, I don’t. For all of you coffee-lovers and Christmas-fanatics, winter is seriously the most wonderful time of the year. Two of your absolute favorite things smash together and bring you SO. MUCH. JOY. Come the first of December (or mid-November, some like to start early and we don’t judge) your Insta feed is spammed with red cups.
Yes, we all absolutely love our Starbucks holiday drinks, but we don’t like what they do to our bank account. Stay in your PJs and try these at-home drink recipes that will taste just as sweet and save you some money for your holiday spending.
1. Crème Brûlée Latte
2. Eggnog Latte
I mean, how do you go wrong with creamy eggnog and espresso?!? Add that pinch of nutmeg and sit by the crackling fire with a good book. Find the recipe here. And if you don’t have a fireplace, find the next best thing here.
3. Chestnut Praline Latte
This one might take all morning to make, but my goodness it is worth it! Get your Christmas carols going while you roast your chestnuts. Find the recipe here.
4. Gingerbread Latte
Grab your ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and (yes) maple syrup, and get this yummy drink in your tummy! Find the recipe here.
5. Peppermint Mocha
Chocolate. Espresso. Peppermint. Life is complete. You can never go wrong with that combination. Find the recipe here.
