This Cardamom Rose Latte adds a gourmet twist on the classic drink. The cardamom adds a citrusy flavor profile and the rose's floral notes make this drink as versatile as it is delicious. Though this latte is made here as a coffee-based drink; tea can be used tea as well to a tasty result. Additionally, it can be served hot or cold so this beverage can be enjoyed any time of year.

Using a cooking mallet, lightly hammer the green cardamom pods to get them to open. Once the cardamom pods are open, add them to a small saucepan. Additionally, add milk, sugar, and rose petals. Heat the milk on low to medium heat until just simmering (this takes about 5 min). Take the milk off the heat, cover to cool about 15 min to 30 min. Once cool, it can be strained and used in your latte. *
Once you are ready to use your Cardamom Rose Creamer (if it is cold, heat it up for 20-30 seconds in the microwave as this will allow it to create more froth for the latte.)
Pour desired amount of Cardamom Rose cream into a cup, and with milk frother, froth the milk until there is a nice foam on the top (about 2 minutes). Once the milk is frothed, add use a spoon to hold back the froth on top and pour the cream over the top of your coffee. Once all of the unfrothed liquid is poured; spoon the froth on top of the latte. If you like you can garnish with crushed rose petals or a dash of ground cardamom.
Extra Cardamom Rose creamer can be stored in a covered container for up to 5 days after making.
- The longer you allow it to steep the stronger the rose and cardamom flavor is.
- The Cardamom Rose Cream froths best when slightly heated.
- Coffee can be substituted with your black tea of your choice or espresso.
Dried rose petals have a full sweet-scented aroma. Simple syrup or other infusions with these rose petals will yield a delicate fruity taste and a heady floral bouquet; an aromatic addition to every thing from baked confections to boozy beverages.
