Oct 22, 2014

Excerpted from "I Love Coffee" by Susan Zimmer (Andrews McMeel Publishing / 2007)


Halloween latte lovers will howl — this is as much fun to drink as it is to make.

Spooktacular Seven-Layer Latte


10 ounces (310 ml) milk
1 ounce (30 ml) orange-flavored syrup
1 1/2 ounces (45 ml) chocolate syrup
1 ounce (30 ml) hazelnut-flavored syrup
2-3 ounces (60-85 ml) hot, fresh espresso or strong coffee
Cocoa powder, for garnish
Black and orange sprinkles, for garnish

1. Steam the milk in a saucepan with a flexible, loose wired whisk or hand mixer, or with a steam want from an espresso machine.

2. In a cup, mix 3 ounces (85ml) of the milk with the orange flavored syrup, to produce orange foam.

3. In a separate cup, mix 3 ounces (85 ml) of the milk with 1 ounce (30 ml) of the chocolate syrup and 1/2 ounce (15 ml) of the hazelnut flavored syrup, to produce tan-colored foam.

4. Into a clear, tall, tapered tempered 16-ounce (250 ml) glass:
Layer 1: Pour 1/2 ounce (15 ml) of the chocolate syrup)
Layer 2: Pour 1/2 ounce (15 ml) of the hazelnut flavored syrup
Layer 3: Very slowly pour or spoon 2 ounces (60 ml) of the untinted milk.
Layer 4: Very slowly pour or spoon 3 ounces (85 ml) of the orange-colored milk.
Layer 5: Very slowly pour or spoon 3 ounces (85 ml) of the tan-colored milk.
Layer 6: Very slowly pour or spoon the remaining 2 ounces (60 ml) untinted milk.
Layer 7: Very slowly pour the espresso down the center of the entire layered drink. (Important: As you pour the espresso, keep the drink still so the coffee will create buoyant, separated, colorful layers like magic!)

5. Dust with coca powder.

6. Garnish with orange and black sprinkles
