Dandy Drink & Be Merry

Delectable Holiday Drinks

From the Winterlong event schedule, I picked out a drink from the Winter Drinks menu that would be perfect for a dandy afternoon tête-à-tête.

Excerpt from Books, Sweets and other Treats post:

Crockpot Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Serves: 4

-4 cups of 2% milk
-1/4 cup pureed or canned pumpkin
-1/4 cup sugar (use brown sugar for a richer flavor)
-1/4 cup vanilla extract

-1 teaspoon pre-mixed pumpkin spice
(if you don't have this, use 1/2 teaspoon gound cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon each of nutmeg and cloves)

-1 1/2 cup brewed, strong coffee
(you can use 1 cup of espresso instead if you like)

-whipped cream for garnish


Pour the milk and coffee into a 4-quart crockpot.

Using a whisk or a fork, stir the rest of the ingredients (except the whipped cream) into the milk and coffee mixture.

Stir it briskly.

Heat on High for 2 hours or Low for 3-4 hours.

Whisk again just before serving in mugs.

Top with whipped cream sprinkled with cinnamon.
