Cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka, Burma and the southern coastal strip of India. Cinnamon is a bushy evergreen tree of the laurel family, cultivated as low bushes to ease the harvesting process. This cinnamon latte recipe is a perfect way to ward off the chill of fall and winter and a great way to share a cup of fellowship with your family and close friends.
2 1/2 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup freshly brewed strong espresso

2. Whisking constantly, heat milk for 5 minutes, or until milk begins to steam; do not boil.

4. Add espresso and cinnamon syrup, whisking to combine.
