Good basis but less is more!! I just had my third gingerbread latte based on this recipe and think I’ve perfected it now! The first following this recipe was waaayyyy too overpowering, hurt my mouth and throat it was so spicy!! So now I make a normal latte but before pouring in the frothy milk I mix in 1/8 teaspoon ginger, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence, 1/8 teaspoon molasses (optional but read in some other recipe and I think it enhances the flavour), 1/2-1 teaspoon of sugar depending on how sweet you like it then stir in the frothy milk and sprinkle a light dusting more of cinnamon and nutmeg on top so that you get the aroma and it looks pretty! Enjoy!

It was okay but way too much spices, I would cut the spices down by half next time as I found them to be a bit too overpowering.
