Snickerdoodle Drink

I don't believe I've posted this before. It's the sort of thing you come up with when you work in a café and you're really, really bored.

You will need:
Chocolate syrup, dark for preference
Vanilla syrup
Almond syrup
Whipped cream

I made this with a steamer wand. You can heat the milk in the microwave but be very very careful to not boil it.

Heat the milk until just shy of boiling. Add in chocolate syrup until the color is nice and dark. Yes, you can make this with hot chocolate mix but it isn't as good and is often too sweet. Then you add 1/2 measure of vanilla syrup— this varies by brand, so a "measure" is what you'd put into a drink to make a flavored latte— and 1/4 measure of almond syrup. Stir in some cinnamon and nutmeg, then top with whipped cream and dust that with cinnamon.

And by the way... don't make this with skim. You're only fooling yourself if you do.
