Step 1: Add the following ingredients into a hand frother (or a bowl).

• 6 oz. milk
• 1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
• 1/4 tsp. sugar (optional)

Step 2: Heat the mixture until it starts to bubble.*

Step 3: Froth the milk mixture until a thick and sturdy foam forms.*

Step 4: Pour the frothed milk into a clear glass. Use a spoon to get as much foam in as possible. Fill the glass about 3/4 of the way.

Step 5: Invert a spoon and SLOWLY pour your steaming hot coffee into the frothed milk mixture.

Step 6: Watch the layers form! In about 60 seconds you should have a lovely 3 layer peppermint macchiato.

Step 7: For an extra special treat take a candy cane and dip it into the foamed milk, then rub it in sugar and serve with your drink as a sweet minty stirrer!

*I used a hand frother for my foamed milk. This is a wonderful and easy way to create foam.
