Gina Gordon’s Pumpkin Spiced Latte
Gina says: In my short story, Her Five Favorite Words, my main character Becca starts off every morning with her favorite drink….a Grande, Vanilla Extra-hot Latte. (FYI..that is my favorite drink too!) But once fall arrives, I switch up my drink of choice to something a little more festive.
I will admit it’s a lot easier to drive over to the nearest Starbucks and buy one but here is a quick recipe for a Pumpkin Spice Latte that I adapted from www.allrecipes.com
You will need:
a couple of tablespoons of pumpkin puree, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 cup milk, 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, sugar (to your liking) and brewed espresso
In a saucepan, combine the milk, pumpkin spice, pumpkin puree and vanilla. Warm over medium-high heat, whisking frequently, until frothy. Pour your espresso and the warmed milk into a mug and add sugar to taste.
