The Dutch ambassador to China was the first known person to drink coffee with milk, around 1660. After that, coffee lovers from all around the world have created amazing milky versions. Here's a few very easy options to make at home and enjoy the season.
Shot of espresso poured over a single marshmallow, resulting in a sweet and thick drink, leading to its name which means "rubbery coffee."
Espresso made with a mixture of half milk and half cream. Yep, when in doubt use both!
Espresso served with sweetened condensed milk in a 1:1 ratio.
(also known as "pingado" or "garoto") is an espresso "cut" with frothy milk on top to reduce the acidity.
Coffee topped with whipped cream. Milk with vanilla syrup is sometimes poured into the coffee/espresso before adding the whipped cream, topped with chocolate or cinnamon.
Feeling adventurous? Put egg yolks, condensed milk and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Whisk with electric beaters for at least 5 mins or until pale and foamy. When ready pour on top of a hot espresso shot.
Is made from espresso, frothy milk, and cocoa powder. Petit delicious!
Consists of espresso, steamed milk, and milk foam served in a large cup and sometimes topped with whipped cream. Sounds like a sumptuous creamy latte, right?
Espresso con panna
Espresso topped with whipped cream. A sip of Italian delight!
Meaning "stained", is an espresso with a dash of foamed milk. Resembles a small cappuccino but has a much stronger and aromatic taste.
Tip: We know a lot of these delicious options use foamed milk, but don't get upset! It's fairly easy to make your own frothy milk at home.
