Must Drink: London Fog

I hate to be one of those downers that complains about the weather all the time, so I'll make it quick.

Dear winter, minus 34 with windchill? Not cool... not. cool. It was fun for a while but if you could kindly make way for spring that'd be great. k, thanks.
Love, Christine

In the meantime, I've been cuddling up with what has become one of my winter staples, the London Fog. I've had these a few times at Starbucks but my cousin, Jenn whipped one up for me a while ago and now I'm hooked. Warm, comfy, delicious and really easy to make...

Here's what you need:
- 1 mug of Earl Grey Tea
- 1-2 Tbsp Vanilla Syrup
- Frothy, Warm Milk
Brew tea, add the syrup to taste, froth milk and scoop on top.

I have a milk frother I use - I just warm the milk for 30sec in microwave and then froth away. You can steam the milk too, whatever floats your boat.



My Mom loves this drink too and says you have to drink it in a clear mug so that you can "see the fog".

I hope you are staying warm where you are and have some signs of spring creeping in. What is it they say, "in like a lion, out like a lamb"? Here's hoping...

  2. This is one of my faves too. I was getting them at the local coffee shop here and then one day I went in and the guy who had been making them for me said he couldn't make them anymore because they weren't on the menu. Hmf. I was very sad...

  6. Looooooooove these drinks!
    @ claudia b-- Starbucks just calls them "Earl Grey Latte". And you when they ask if you want the sweetener say yes- that's the vanilla syrup. :)
