Spring is here, and what better way to welcome the season than with a refreshing and floral coffee drink? This hibiscus honey latte recipe is the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather.
It combines the tart and tangy flavors of hibiscus with the sweetness of honey and the richness of coffee for a unique and delicious beverage.
Here's what you'll need to make this hibiscus honey latte:
- 2 tbsp dried hibiscus flowers
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup milk
- 2 shots of espresso or 1 cup of strong coffee
- 1 tbsp honey
- Whipped cream and edible flowers for garnish (optional)
- Brew the hibiscus tea: In a small pot, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Once boiling, remove the pot from heat and add 2 tbsp of dried hibiscus flowers. Let the flowers steep for 5 minutes, then strain the tea and set it aside.
- Prepare the latte: If you don't have an espresso machine with a milk steamer: in a separate pot, heat 1 cup of milk over medium heat until it starts to steam. Froth the milk using a milk frother or whisk until it's light and airy. Combine the frothed milk with the hibiscus tea and 2 shots of espresso or 1 cup of strong coffee.
- Sweeten with honey: Add 1 tbsp of honey to the latte and stir until it's dissolved. Adjust the sweetness to your liking.
- Garnish and serve: If desired, top the latte with whipped cream and edible flowers for a beautiful presentation. Enjoy immediately while it's still warm!
