New England Winter Latte
Ever think of relaxing after dinner with a hot beverage? Here is the perfect one for you. Who knows? It may even take desserts place. If you want to get creative, pour a little milk or cream over the top, creating a circle and run a knife down the center to create a heart. Bring out the inner artist(or romantic) in you.
For 4 people
- 1/2 cup(s) ground coffee
- 2 cup(s) water
- 3 cup(s) milk
- 1 cup(s) canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
- 1/2 cup(s) brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon(s) ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon(s) nutmeg
- whipped cream
- ground nutmeg, for garnish if desired
New England Winter Latte Directions
- Place coffee in the filter of a drip coffee maker. Add water and brew the coffee. While the coffee brews, combine in a large saucepan the milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and 1/8 tsp nutmeg. Cook and stir over medium heat until steaming. Remove from heat. Divide the coffee into five mugs. Add the milk mixture and stir. Top with whipped cream and a light sprinkling of nutmeg (or cinnamon).
- Make this a Macchiato simply by NOT stirring the coffee with the milk mixture, thereby creating 2 separate levels of flavor.
