Torani Review

With Christmas on its, way most of us have holiday parties, cookie decorating and for me there certain flavors that just make Christmas feel whole. Pumpkin, Egg Nog, and Gingerbread are my top favorites! I was really excited when Shespeaks sent me both Hazelnut and Gingerbread. The first thing I did was take them over to my friend's Playgroup and tested them out on the moms there. I made Gingerbread Lattes and they were a really big hit! Everyone loved the flavor! Here's the recipe I followed:

  • 2 tbsp (1 oz) Torani Gingerbread Syrup
  • 1 cup (8oz) milk
  • 2 shots espresso

Instructions:Steam together milk and Torani. Pour into a tall glass and add brewed espresso. Spoon a thin layer of foamed milk over beverage.  You can substitute 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee, that's what I do since I don't have an espresso machine.

This second drink that I made for myself would be great for a holiday party or for Christmas morning. I love Hazelnut and Chocolate and who doesn't love Macadamia nuts! Plus the name itself sounds like Christmas. Charlie Brown Mocha. I'm going to make one of these and curl up in a blanket and watch Charlie Browns Christmas tonight! Sounds good huh!

  • 1 tbsp (1/2 oz) Torani Macadamia Nut Syrup
  • 1 tbsp (1/2 oz) Torani Dark Chocolate Sauce
  • 1 tbsp (1/2 oz) Torani Classic Hazelnut Syrup
  • 2 shots espresso
  • 1 cup (8oz) milk, steamed

Instructions:Steam together milk & Torani. Pour into a glass and add brewed espresso. Garnish with Chocolate Sauce drizzle. *Can substitute 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
