"I make this in a French Press, but could be made with drip coffee. For hot milk, I use a glass milk-frother. Heat milk in microwave and use plunger to froth lightly. Strain milk into coffee, remove lid, and put some foam on top of coffee."

I love gingerbread, this delicious coffee is certainly reminiscent of it. Loved all the spices and ease of this tasty beverage. The molasses adds a lovely depth to this treat. Thank you for sharing another winner for me Mikekey. Happy Holidays my friend. Made for Holiday Hits - Beverages 2015.

This is really quite good. I don't usually put any sweetener in my coffee, but I did find this benefited from the addition of a little caramel syrup (the type for flavoring latte) which I have in a sugar-free version and also I liked a bit of coffee cream. Just like Starbuck's at home. Thanks, Mikekey!
