Mix your ground ginger, cinnamon and mixed spice in a small bowl to create your gingerbread spice mix. Here you can add a pinch of black pepper for an extra punch of flavour.


Next, heat the milk, and whisk in the spice mix, vanilla extract and sugar in a small saucepan until sugar has dissolved and you can see steam beginning to rise from the pan. While you’re doing this prepare a strong espresso and divide over two mugs.


Pour your milk mixture over the espresso through a small sieve and stir to combine.


Top off with whipped cream (such as whipped coconut cream), shaved dark chocolate and more cinnamon.
