Brewin' with Brandi: Caramel Maple Latte
If there's any way you're going to make it through the trytophan-infused fare of the day, it's via the magical meditative combo of coffee and drawing cartoon turkeys. So while you're expressing yourself artistically, how about jazzing up your coffee with some seasonally-inspired syrup and sauce?
Today's recipe features our favorite body lotion (er, Monin Caramel sauce) and Maple Spice syrup, which join forces to accent the espresso with sweet and creamy notes. Watch as Brandi crafts it on her new favorite easy-to-use superautomatic espresso machine, the Saeco Minuto.
Recipe: Caramel Maple Latte
- 1/2 oz Monin Caramel sauce
- 1/2 oz Monin Maple Spice syrup
- 1 oz espresso
- Steamed milk (to taste)
In your serving cup, combine the sauce and syrup together, then add the espresso and stir well until thoroughly blended. Pour the steamed milk to taste -- we used about 6 ounces, but you could use more or less depending on how sweet you like your coffee drinks.
