During the week I drink office coffee, which as we all know can be slightly lacking. So over the weekend, I really like to spruce things up. This recreation of the latte that I had at Chicago’s “The Bourgeois Pig” cafe is so simple to make that it doesn’t really count as a recipe, but I never would have thought to use the allspice/honey combo, and I must pass on the love.
- ⅔ cups
- ⅓ cups
- 2 teaspoons
- ⅛ teaspoons
- 1 Tablespoon
Make your espresso. Buy some of the good stuff! Yes, it’s more pricey, but for a treat over the weekend, it’s definitely worth it.
Heat and froth half-and-half; create as much foam as you can.
Combine espresso and half-and-half in a cup of your choice, and stir in the honey and allspice. Taste it and adjust to your desired sweetness level. Add the foam and sprinkle a little allspice on top. After drinking it plain, I tried adding 1 tablespoon of bourbon—it added a fun bite, but I like it best whiskey-less.
Now find a comfy chair and a good book, and relax!
