Of the many delicious hot (or iced) beverages baristas are crafting, one of most popular is the White Chocolate Latté.
As with many lattés, baristas are finding ways to take this drink in new directions. Some add vanilla or almond extract; some adjust ratios of milk, half and half, and cream; and some even add peppermint syrup for a holiday variation. The white chocolate flavor usually comes either from white chocolate chips or a white chocolate syrup or sauce like Torani White Chocolate Syrup or White Chocolate Sauce.
Like all the best-loved examples of food and beverages—fresh bread, chili, apple pie—recipes claiming the honor of “best” White Chocolate Latté abound. All that matters in the end is the taste that you like best. Or better yet—adjust the ingredients or amounts and invent your own version.
