Frequently Asked Questions

How much gingerbread syrup to use in a latte?

Because this uses ground ginger as opposed to fresh ginger, and the mixture doesn’t infuse for very long, the flavor won’t be shockingly strong. You can use a few tablespoons in your latte, but give it a taste and make sure you like it! You can always add more 🙂

What is gingerbread syrup?

Gingerbread Syrup is a sugary mixture made from simmering ingredients typically found in gingerbread. If you taste it, you’ll find that the flavor is reminiscent of the cookie with strong flavors of ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

How to use gingerbread syrup?
