Christmas Spiced Cappuccino (Costa) By @Cinabar

As much as I love a seasonal menu in a coffee shop I am aware they usually arrive loaded with cream and syrup and aren’t the healthiest thing. They are good fuel for Christmas shopping though as everyone needs a treat after that. One of the more easy going sounding drinks from Costa this year is this Christmas Spiced Cappuccino, it doesn’t have cream but it made with seasonal spices and has cinnamon sprinkles on top.bI love cinnamon.
I found this drink easier to have with a savoury sandwich than say the lushness of the Irish Velvet Latte which is more of a dessert drink. Well a dessert in drink format I guess.
The Christmas Spiced Cappuccino has some of my favourite spiced running through it and the tones of cinnamon and nutmeg make it a wonderful warming drink that does taste of Christmas. It still very much tastes of coffee though which is sometimes lost on the more elaborate drinks.
Although there is sweetness with this Costa Christmas Spiced Cappuccino the drink isn’t overly so and I say that as someone who doesn’t take sugar in coffee. The spices enhance it, I love the mix of cinnamon in this drink and found it a wonderful winter warmer. I do think there is a place of cream and syrup but this may well be my drink of choice this season with its fabulous spices. Christmas in a mug.
