Gingerbread Latte Recipe | Holiday Coffee Drink

Last Updated on December 6, 2019 by Ellen Christian

Christmas means stress. OK it shouldn’t mean stress. It should mean candy canes and Christmas cookies and Santa and happy children singing Christmas carols. But it doesn’t. What it really means is working 12 hours a day, fighting traffic with idiots who have forgotten how to drive, teenagers who have Christmas lists longer than my arm and more things than I can accomplish and still keep my sanity.

Gingerbread Latte Recipe | Holiday Coffee Drink

The only way I actually make it through the stress of the holidays is with caffeine. It can’t be just any caffeinated beverage. The caffeine may keep me going so I can get everything done; but, I need to make it a little special as a reward for getting everything done.  Of all the holiday coffee drink recipes I’ve tried, this Gingerbread Latte recipe is one of my favorites.  It’s got a yummy holiday flavor like the lattes you buy at the coffee houses without any of the chemicals they put in theirs. It’s a healthier choice that you can make right at home.

  • 1/2 cup fresh coffee, strong
  • 1 cup of warm milk
  • whipped cream


  1. Combine the water, sugar, ginger, cinnamon and vanilla in a pot and bring it to a boil. Turn the heat down and let the syrup simmer to thicken.
  2. Do not cover. Remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes.

You can make the extra Gingerbread Syrup into a great Christmas gift. Just put it in a Mason jar with a gift tag. That’s one less gift you have to worry about getting.

Of course, one of the problems with drinking more coffee to keep going is that it makes me have to *go* more often. Caffeine is just one of those light bladder leakage (LBL) triggers like cold air, stress, exercising and laughing.  Try running through the parking lot at Macy’s to finish your Christmas shopping the day before Christmas while enjoying this Gingerbread latte recipe and you’ll understand what I mean. Thankfully, Poise Microliners offer light bladder leakage protection so that’s one worry I don’t have to deal with as I head out to finish my Christmas shopping.

The Super Absorbent Material (SAM) in the Poise Microliners means that I have discreet LBL protection that keeps me dry and comfortable all day long no matter what. I love how thin the Poise Microliners are. I can seriously forget that I’m wearing one and just focus on what I need to do. One in three women suffer from LBL so I know I’m not the only woman that’s dealing with it during the stress of the holidays. You have enough things to worry about. Life’s little leaks shouldn’t be one of them.
