This reminds me of a gingerbread-style beverage I got from a chain restaurant around the holidays. I had mine with cream, because it was what I had on hand, but definitely will be picking up whipped cream for future servings. Because I'm the only coffee drinker, I froze about half the mixture in 2 teaspoon servings in an ice cube tray. When they were solid, I popped them out and put them into a ziptop bag. I'll defrost them for hot coffee use, or I may play around with them in an iced coffee version.

This is a good "syrup" but be sure to have some whipped topping if you use it in coffee. I found it was also very good on oatmeal.

This is a very easy and delicious recipe. I made it for my son who has a favorite gingerbread latte that is served at a well known coffee house only at Christmas. I tailored it by adding more milk and less coffee and adding whipped cream suit his tastes.
