These Fall Lattes Will Be Your New Coffee Obsession

Photographed by Jackie Alpers.
We've finally changed things up from our daily cold-brew routine to all our favorite autumnal lattes. While local coffee spots are constantly trying to one-up each other with new flavors, we're going to save some serious cash this year by making these drinks at home. From Mexican chocolate to salted caramel to a brilliant hack for making frothy milk, we've got everything you need to become a fall-latte pro.

Mexican Chocolate Iced Latte
Makes 1 latte

For the simple syrup:
(You can make the simple syrup ahead and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. The recipe makes enough syrup for about 12 drinks.)
1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp vanilla
1 pinch of cayenne, optional

1. Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until it starts to simmer.

2. Continue cooking until sugar and spices have dissolved and fully incorporated, about 5 minutes.

3. It will look like thin chocolate sauce. Remove from heat and let cool before using.

For the iced latte:
8 ounces chilled coffee, preferably cold-brewed
4 ounces milk or cream
1-2 tbsp simple syrup

Pour the simple syrup mixture into the bottom of a tall glass and stir in the cold coffee. Top with ice and cream. Enjoy!

Tip: For stronger coffee, try freezing coffee and/or cream in large ice molds. We got ours from Sharper Image.
