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 cup Spiced Chai Tea (that recipe makes 3-4 servings, so just hang on to the extras for tomorrow!), but if you don’t feel like making your own, chai from concentrate works too

– 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!
