Philip Speer’s downtown coffee trailer, My Name is Joe Coffee Co., 168 W. Fifth St., also serves other drinks to get you going in the morning.
One of the buzziest drinks at the moment is this golden latte. You might have seen this drink pop up on Pinterest or Instagram, but if you haven’t, it’s a bright yellow coconut milk-based drink made with good-for-you turmeric and ginger. The ingredients need to infuse overnight, but it makes four servings that you can store in the fridge for a few days.
1 (13.5 ounce) can coconut milk
3 cups unsweetened almond milk
2 ounce piece fresh ginger, finely sliced
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a 2 quart container or bowl, mix all ingredients together and whisk until honey is dissolved. Let aromatics infuse overnight or at least 12 hours. Strain off aromatics and adjust seasoning. Add more honey if you prefer sweeter and more almond milk if you like the consistency thinner.
Serve over ice in a clear glass to show off the beautiful golden-yellow color. Serves 4.
