In my opinion, it’s always time for something cozy. So there’s no excuse needed to drink more warm beverages, including lattes!

I’ve been daydreaming about one of the best-ever coffee drinks I’ve ever had. It was during a business trip to Minneapolis a few years ago. I stopped in a mom-and-pop coffee shop and ordered a rosemary latte. I haven’t stopped thinking about it since.

So I decided to recreate it. Let me show you how to make a rosemary latte.

Ingredients

To make a rosemary latte, you’ll need just a few foods:

Brewed espresso: What’s a latte without an espresso base? Of course, if you prefer a beverage of the more caffeine-free variety, you can use decaf espresso. Either way, freshly ground coffee beans taste the best, in my opinion.

Milk: This adds protein. If you’re vegan, you can use soy milk or oat milk. If you’re a plant-based gluten- free eater, make sure to purchase a gluten-free oat milk.

Rosemary: This is the key ingredient of the latte! Rosemary has always been one of my favorite herbs. The rosemary herb is technically an aromatic evergreen shrub that came to us from the Mediterranean region.

Its associated benefits range from ones for mood to ones for overall health. Because rosemary boasts antioxidants–those health-helping compounds–rosemary is thought to boast anti-inflammatory benefits, according to a study in Nutrition Today.

The power herb could even help lessen complications from obesity and diabetes. Talk about a wonder ingredient!

Step-by-step instructions

Making a rosemary latte takes just minutes, but you will have to prepare the rosemary syrup recipe ahead of time.

To make the simple syrup, you’ll combine a cup of sugar with one cup water in a large saucepan over high heat. Then you’ll stir to combine. Add four sprigs of fresh rosemary.

Bring everything to a boil, and stir often. After one minute or until the sugar and water are well combined, remove everything from the heat for 30 minutes.

Once everything is cooled, you will pour the liquid through a wire mesh strainer into a glass jar or bottle.

Then add in one sprig of rosemary, and discard the remaining sprigs. Remove the sprig of rosemary after a day or two. The rosemary syrup will stay good for about a month.

To prepare the latte, first add brewed espresso to a warmed cappuccino cup.

Then use a milk steamer to steam milk. Alternatively, heat milk in a small saucepan over medium heat; stir with a wooden spoon until liquid is warm, and remove immediately.

Pour steamed milk on top of espresso. Stir in simple syrup. Top with fresh rosemary.

Then ta-dah! You have the most delicious herb-infused coffee drink.
