Dirty Ginger Chai Latté
That title sure is a mouthful, isn’t it? Well, I can assure you the adjectives are worth it. This is a loaded beverage. You’re getting spice from the Chai, a little kick from the ginger, and a strong wake up call from the espresso. This is a drink for the dreary Monday mornings where getting out of bed actually seems harder than running a 10k in stilettos (hey Massachusetts- feel like actually letting it be Spring already? It is almost April..) It’s also perfectly acceptable to make this drink and then get back into said bed. I don’t judge, I just cook.
Latté (serves 1)
– 1/4-1/2 tsp. ground ginger (or 1/2 shot ginger syrup if you’re looking for something sweeter)
– 1 shot espresso
-1/2 cup steamed milk
Heat your tea on medium low and with a whisk dissolve the ginger. Pull your espresso shot and heat the milk. Pour the coffee into a mug, then add the tea and top with milk. Yum. If you’re not in the mood for a hot drink, this is also amazing poured over ice!
