This is like drinking a gingerbread cookie. As soon as winter rolls around, we all start craving those holiday flavors. What better way to enjoy them than in a nice warm beverage? Cozy up next to the fireplace and watch snowflakes fall while you drink this Christmas in a cup.



  • 2 ounces espresso
  • 10 ounces milk
  • 2 teaspoons molasses
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar, plus more as needed
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • Pour the espresso into a mug
  • Stir in the molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, and nutmeg
  • Place the milk in a wide glass or glass jar and microwave for 30 seconds until it is very hot but not boiling. Alternatively, heat the milk in a saucepan over medium heat for about 5 minutes until very hot but not boiling, watching it carefully
  • Using a milk frother, froth the milk until you don’t see any bubbles and you have a thick froth, 20 to 30 seconds. Swirl the glass and lightly tap it on the counter repeatedly to pop the larger bubbles. Repeat this step as needed
  • Using a spoon to hold back the foam, pour the milk into the espresso. Spoon the remaining foam on top

Recipe Tip

Experiment with other winter spices, such as allspice or clove, in this drink. You can also top it off with homemade whipped cream and a little gingerbread cookie to turn this beverage into a dessert.
