I was in a grocery store this week that has a fabulous coffee bar, and saw that one of their specials this month was a french toast latte.
Hold. The. Phone.
French toast latte? That sounded amazing.
However, this was in the early evening, and I try not to drink coffee that late in the day (otherwise I don't sleep well).
But I could not get this latte off my mind.
So, this weekend I decided to try and replicate it at home. Without tasting it, I have no idea what the ingredients of said latte actually are - but I took a guess.
I'm no stranger to making my own simple syrups for coffee at home, and I figured a Cinnamon Maple simple syrup would be appropriate in this case. Depending on your preference, you can use as little or as much of the syrup as you want, and the same goes for the milk.
Also, I happen to like my lattes iced, but you can also use the ingredients hot - just warm the milk in a saucepan first.
