All I Need is a Green Apron

I'm telling you--just give me a green apron and call me a barista! I'm on a roll with this new espresso machine. My latest and greatest is the Cinnamon Dolce Latte (my husband's favorite)!

I think this recipe makes me really happy because I paid 6.99 for the Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce syrup and it can make 33 LATTES! Do you even know how much much money that saves the Plunkett's?!

Here's the recipe:
2 shots espresso
8 oz hot milk
2 tbsp Cinnamon Dolce syrup
Dollop of whip cream
Dash of cinnamon

Now, because I have not yet mastered the milk steamer attached to my machine I heated the milk in the microwave for 1:30 and then stirred all the ingredients together, topped with whip cream, and sprinkled cinnamon on top.

According to my husband it was wonderful!

Where did you get the syrup? Do some Starbucks have it? I've always seen only the stuff to make the caramel machiatto.

I got it at Starbucks. You have to ask for it. The barista I talked to said they don't put them out but you can ask for them.
