Easy Christmas coffee recipe ideas

Add a dash of cinnamon flavour. Cinnamon is a quintessential Christmas scent and flavour. It’s a quick and easy way to get yourself in the festive mood. Add a cinnamon stick to your coffee and let it steep for five minutes or so, add a dash of cinnamon syrup to your mug or sprinkle a cappuccino with powdered cinnamon instead of chocolate. If you really love cinnamon, you could try everything at once!

Add a slosh of brandy. The quickest way to warm up when it’s cold outside! Add a small dash of brandy to a standard black coffee, add a little sugar and a spoonful of cream and you’ll be feeling toasty in no time.

Create your own festive blend. If you either grind your own beans or brew from ground coffee, then you can get creative. Add some fresh orange zest, a teaspoon of nutmeg and a sprinkle of ginger (either fresh or powdered) to the coffee grounds as you brew for a little extra zing.

Go sweeter. The taste of caramel is very comforting, so for a quick and easy upgrade just add a shot of caramel syrup to your coffee. For a fancier drink, top with whipped cream and crushed butterscotch.

Pep things up. Add a peppermint candy cane to a milky latte. Use the stick to stir, and as it dissolves you’ll get a hint of sweet peppermint flavour.
