Spicy Gingerbread Lattes

  • Warm and cozy spicy gingerbread lattes are the only way to beat the cold! These extra spicy gingerbread lattes are the best holiday homemade drink!

    It was sooo cold this past week. It felt like -6 degrees on Thursday and Friday. Bitter cold and even fleece-lined leggings weren’t cutting it. Speaking of fleece-lined leggings, the ones I purchased from Nordstrom last year aren’t being offered again this year (why?! they sold out super fast last year so I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t bring it back again) so I had to do some research. I had people telling me that VS ones were awesome but I just couldn’t chalk up $65 for leggings. Kohl’s had a pair but I wasn’t a huge fan of them but they were decently priced for $25. Then Amazon came to the rescue and I ended up getting a pair of these and they are just as thick as my Nordstrom ones and just as warm AND only $20. I’m actually about to purchase two more! #addicted but mainly because they’re so cozyyyy.

    And speaking of cozy..spicy gingerbread lattes need to be on your must-have by the fire list because these are the ultimate coffee drinks to be sipping on when you’re getting warm. I LOVE spicy gingerbread. I don’t like the mild ones. They just don’t have enough flavor for me. If you make me a gingerbread cookie that is extra spicy, I will love you forever. I’m easy to please.

    Trader Joe’s has the best gingersnap cookies because not only are there THREE different types of ginger in them, they’re also spicy. They’re actually TJ’s best selling cookie and I can totally see why.

    OMG- it feels that cold here in Seattle too. To us the 30’s are NOT the norm- and probably your equivalent of the teens! I do not have appropriate outdoor gear unless I go straight to ski clothes. I probably need your leggings! oh, and this hot chocolate of course!

  • Myrna Doucette says:

    when i subscribed to your site I assumed table for two indicated recipes for two people, however, many are for more than two servings. How so?

    • Julie says:

      Hi, assumptions are never fact. Fact of the matter is, Table for Two is not *just* a site for two servings. As stated in my FAQ’s section, Table for Two is a name for my husband & I’s current lifestyle. Both of us are a ‘Table for Two’ – hope that clarifies things!
