When the holiday season approaches and the temperatures continue to dip, we start to subconsciously crave a warming peppermint mocha latte in a steaming mug. YUM!

There’s nothing quite like the boost of caffeine, wrapped in the guise of a sweet, creamy coffee, hinted with a cool burst of peppermint syrup to take away the winter chill.

And, it must be said – for us anyway – that’s the flavor of the holiday season. We associate this mocha recipe with lacing up our ice skates and taking a spin around the brisk outdoor rink – as the colored lights twinkle and shine.

Well, you don’t need to shell out big bucks at a franchise coffee shop or overpriced cafe to get your peppermint mocha fix this winter! Nor do you need the espresso pulling talents of a professional barista.

If you’ve ever wondered what the whole mocha vs latte thing is… well, this is for you!

Simply put – a latte is an espresso drink, mixed with steamed milk.

And while a cappuccino typically has a 1:1:1 ratio of espresso, steamed milk and milk foam – a latte is the espresso mixed with more steamed milk and juuust a touch of foam on top. Think of a latte as a ‘wet’ cappuccino.

Now, a mocha is basically a latte with the addition of chocolate (usually chocolate syrup).

Therefore, it’s pretty common to hear a mocha called a mocha latte. However, no matter what you decide to call it, mochas are simply delicious!



We’ve got a little at-home-hack for this minty mocha latte recipe.

Simply mix a packet of instant coffee with about 8 ounces of hot water. If you’ve got a Tiger Electric Water Boiler and Dispenser in your kitchen, there’s no need to wait for water to heat up on the stovetop. With a safety lock, you’ll never have to worry about spills. And with multiple temperature settings, your peppermint mocha can be piping hot, while the one you make for Grandma can be a bit cooler… just how she likes it 🙂

Add hot chocolate mix and peppermint syrup to your coffee – and as much milk as you prefer. Then top with whipped cream and crushed candy canes.

This warming – and easy to make – peppermint mocha will be your go-to holiday drink this winter!
