There are certain scents and flavors we equate with every holiday.  For me, the holidays smell and taste like peppermint.

The strong yet calming smell makes me immediately think of candy canes, pine trees and presents.  And it wouldn’t be the holidays without a large peppermint mocha latte from my favorite coffee spot.

I set off last holiday season to recreate the drink at home and give it my own spin.

What I ended up with was the perfect cup of Peppermint Mocha Cafe con Leche – after all, it did need a little Latina twist!

I’ve simplified the recipe down so that all you need are a few key ingredients, a microwave and an espresso maker. Enjoy!
