Course Coffee, Latte

Ingredients
  

Latte

  • 1-2 teaspoons Cinnamon-Brown Sugar Simple Syrup see below for recipe
  • Strong brewed espresso
  • Equal amount of Graham Cracker Milk see below for recipe, warmed

For Cinnamon-Brown Sugar Simple Syrup

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Graham Cracker Milk

  • 3 cups milk of your choice {I used almond milk} divided
  • 4 graham cracker sheets {8 individual crackers} crumbled

Instructions
 

Latte

  • Add syrup to the bottom of your coffee mug/cup/bowl/vessel.
  • Pour freshly brewed espresso over it.
  • Pour in equal amount of milk.

For Cinnamon-Brown Sugar Simple Syrup

  • In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stir together brown sugar and water. Toss in cinnamon stick.
  • Bring to a boil and allow to boil for a minute until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and allow cinnamon stick to steep in the syrup about 10 - 15 minutes. Stir in vanilla extract.
  • Pour into a mason jar or container with an airtight lid and store in refrigerator.

For Graham Cracker Milk

  • Warm 1 1/2 cups milk slightly in the microwave or a saucepan. Toss in graham crackers and stir until you have a soggy mess. Let it sit for about 10 minutes.
  • Pour the mixture into a fine mesh strainer, and press down on the graham cracker solids with a spatula or spoon to strain the liquid part of the mixture into a bowl {or better yet, something with a spout like a liquid measuring cup}. You should get about 1 cup of milk -- discard the solids.
  • Repeat if necessary {i.e. if the milk looks like it has too many little pieces floating around in it.} The milk will be slightly thickened.
  • Pour the remaining 1 1/2 cups milk into the graham cracker milk and stir to combine.
  • Store the graham cracker milk in a mason jar or a container with an airtight lid. Keep refrigerated.
