It's the coziest season of the year, which means it's time to drink more warm beverages. Thank goodness for an excuse to drink more lattes!
How This Rosemary Latte Came to Be
I've been pretty landlocked lately (ya know, thanks to COVID-19). But that doesn't mean I can't daydream about delicious beverages I've sipped during my travels. And one in particular comes to mind: one of the best-ever coffee drinks I've ever had.
It was during a business trip to Minneapolis a couple of years ago. I stopped in a mom-and-pop coffee shop and ordered a rosemary latte. I haven't stopped thinking about it since.
And so I had to recreate the rosemary coffee drink!
Let's Talk About the Rosemary Herb
Rosemary has always been one of my favorite herbs. The rosemary herb is technically an aromatic evergreen shrub that came to us from the Mediterranean region.
Its associated benefits range from ones for mood to ones for overall health. Because rosemary boasts antioxidants–those health-helping compounds–rosemary is thought to boast anti-inflammatory benefits, according to a study in Nutrition Today.
The power herb could even help lessen complications from obesity and diabetes. Talk about a wonder ingredient!
How to Make a Rosemary Latte
Awhile back, I created a rosemary syrup recipe. I used the rosemary syrup in a sangria, but of course I had to think of more ways to use it. Enger this herbal latte recipe.
Making a rosemary latte is so easy. All you have to do is make a normal latte, using whatever milk you prefer–whether that's regular milk, almond milk, or another type of plant-based milk. Then, stir a couple of teaspoons of rosemary simple syrup into the latte. Finally, top with fresh herbs.
I prefer using simple syrup that's at room temperature. Homemade simple syrup has a shelf life of a couple of weeks.
Then ta-dah! You have the most delicious herb-infused coffee drink. Of course, if you prefer a beverage of the more caffeine-free variety, you can use decaf espresso. Freshly ground coffee beans taste the best.
See, you don't need any super fancy equipment like a cocktail shaker or a double boiler to make this drink!
