Many coffee lovers like trying new flavors, and lattes are often a favorite when it comes to flavored coffee drinks. Coffee shops often have seasonal drinks throughout the year based on popular flavors. The following is a list of 5 flavored lattes that you should try if you love coffee.

 

Pumpkin Spice

This flavor is the perfect drink if you love fall. It brings to mind falling leaves, warm fires, and fun fall activities like visiting a pumpkin patch. Pumpkin spice lattes usually have cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and pumpkin. The spices are bold without being overwhelming. They complement the sweetness of the pumpkin and bring out the fall flavors.

 

Peppermint

The peppermint latte is the quintessential holiday drink and you'll probably love it if you're a fan of mint. It contains peppermint flavor, and many also have mocha. This drink is ideal for holiday shopping, caroling, or other fun holiday activities. Many peppermint lattes are garnished with a candy cane or candy cane sprinkles, which not only looks appealing but also adds that extra bit of minty flavor.

 

Salted Caramel

Caramel lovers will appreciate the salty sweetness of the salted caramel latte. This is a great dessert drink if you like coffee after dinner and it makes a fabulous iced latte during the warmer months. A salted caramel latte is fairly simple as it usually has caramel sauce and sea salt. You can also make a salted caramel mocha latte by adding chocolate for a truly indulgent drink.

 

Chai

This one is a bit different from a classic latte as it's made with chai tea instead of coffee. This traditional Indian tea is spicy and warm, an excellent drink for a cool evening. With the addition of milk and spices like cardamom, cloves, peppercorns, and ginger. This is the perfect drink for you if you like things a little spicy.

 

Gingerbread

This latte, created after a favorite holiday cookie, has ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and other spices. These spices make for the classic holiday taste for a great addition to a holiday celebration. Like the previously mentioned peppermint latte, the gingerbread latte is a wintertime favorite. If you enjoy gingerbread cookies, you'll probably love the gingerbread latte.

 

Flavored lattes are often created to bring happiness through seasonal flavors that remind you of holidays, fun activities, or happy memories. Although you can get great lattes at coffee shops, you can also make them at home. If you want to try any of these flavored lattes in your own home, you can find simple recipes online. Most only require strong coffee or espresso, milk, and a few flavorings such as Monin. Once you learn the basics of making a great latte you can even experiment with flavors of your own.
