One of my goals when I bought my espresso machine was to avoid Starbucks.
I have been doing a good job but the wife still frequents. I am on a mission to "Baristo" a drink she will like at home.

Pumkin Pie Latte

Ingredients:
1 oz Monin Pumkin Pie Syrup
2 Shots Espresso
Whipped Cream
Graham Cracker
Milk


Directions:
Pour 2 shots of espresso, stir in 1 oz pumpkin pie syrup and set aside.
Steam milk and add to espresso/syrup mix while slowly stiring.
Garnish with whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs. Enjoy.

I didn't have the correct glass for this drink but it worked fine in a beer mug.
I also used a tub of frozen cool whip, a can of compressed whipped cream would have topped off the glass better.
I actually enjoyed this change of pace foofoo latte, can't wait to see what the wife thinks.

She liked it, but not the graham cracker crumbs. She didn't like the texture they added.
