RECIPE

The Best Spiked Gingerbread Latté

Matthew Kelly/Supercall

When pumpkin spice season comes to an end, it’s time for gingerbread. Sweet, spicy and comforting, gingerbread is the edible embodiment of holiday cheer. But if you’d rather drink your yuletide spirit, we have you covered with this warming cocktail—no stressful, collapsing gingerbread houses required. This drink is just a tasty mix of hot coffee, homemade gingerbread syrup (made with dark molasses, whole cloves and cinnamon sticks, vanilla and a healthy zing of fresh ginger) and Cognac. Topped off with Baileys Irish Cream and fresh, ginger-and-cinnamon-spiced whipped cream, it’s a winter wonderland in a mug.
