The mornings are finally chilly around here which means it’s time to cozy up with warm beverages like these delicious Chamomile Pumpkin Spice Lattes…
Here’s how to make this delightful beverage…
Chamomile Pumpkin Spice Lattes
For each latte…
1 cup freshly brewed hot coffee
Half cup whole milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Generous pinch of ground ginger
2 teaspoons Chamomile Simple Syrup (recipe below)
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon canned pumpkin
First, pour coffee into a large mug. Then, place the rest of the ingredients in a saucepan and warm over medium heat. Do not allow the mixture to simmer…lower heat if needed. Stir occasionally. Once mixture begins to steam, remove from heat and whisk vigorously. Pour into the hot coffee and stir. Garnish with fresh, organic edible chamomile flowers or sprinkle with a touch of cinnamon.
Add 2 ounces whiskey if you’d like to make this an evening cocktail! You can also try our Chamomile Hot Toddy for another lovely, cozy libation…cheers!
Chamomile Simple Syrup
One tablespoon organic, dried chamomile flowers (if you can’t find dried whole flowers, you can use a bag of chamomile tea)
1 cup organic sugar
1 cup filtered water
Place all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Allow to simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool. If you are using a bag of chamomile tea rather than the whole flowers, simply make the simple syrup without the flowers. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat and add the teabag. Allow to steep for about 10 minutes. Discard teabag. Place in a squeaky-clean, airtight container and store in the fridge for up to two weeks.
