Coffee is loved by all around the world.

So why not try these three different recipes to boost the taste of your regular coffee this winter?

CARAMEL COFFEE

Just by reading it, you would know it is going to taste fantastic as this drink is a combination of the two most liked things; coffee and caramel.

INGREDIENTS

Milk – 1 and half cups

Hot water – 1 cup

Instant coffee – 4 tbsp

Caramel syrup – ½ cup

Whipped cream

You can either use a readymade version of caramel syrup, or you can even make it on your own by following this simple recipe.

Brown sugar – 1 packet

Unsalted butter – 4 tbsp

Salt

Vanilla extract – 1tsp

Heavy cream – ½ cup

PROCEDURE

For caramel, add sugar and cream to a sauce pan and strictly use a wooden spoon to mix them together. Then add butter to it, and wait until the butter has melted, stirring continuously. Add a pinch of salt to it. Then remove it off the stove and add vanilla extract. It can crystallize easily so make sure you only use a wooden spoon.

To make the coffee, combine water and milk in a sauce pan over medium heat. Then add instant coffee to it and stir it for a while. Pour that in to a cup and then add two spoons of caramel sauce to each cup. This doesn’t necessarily need sugar, but if you like a more sweet taste then you can add it. Garnish with some whipped cream, add more sauce and coffee over it.

HOT CHOCOLATE MARSHMALLOW COFFEE

Fusion of the two most popular winter picks; hot chocolate with coffee! This is surely going to leave you wanting for more.

INGREDIENTS

Freshly brewed coffee – ½ a cup

Hot chocolate powder – 4 tbsp

Milk – 2 cups

Marshmallow whip

PROCEDURE

Mix the milk with coffee on a heated stove. Then add hot chocolate powder to it and mix it further for two minutes. Pour it in a cup and use marshmallow whip for garnishing. Pour some coffee powder or hot chocolate powder on top of the marshmallow whip and serve it hot!

BUTTERSCOTCH COFFEE

For this amazing coffee treat you are going to need the following.

INGREDIENTS

Milk – 2 cups

Hot water – 1 cup

Instant coffee – 4 tsp

Butterscotch syrup – 3 tbsp

Toffees

Whipped cream

PROCEDURE

Heat the milk and add water to it. Before it boils, add coffee to it. Then remove it off the stove and add the butter scotch syrup. You don’t necessarily need to add sugar to it because butterscotch syrup would provide you with all the sweetness. Pour it into a large coffee mug and then pour some whipped cream on top. You can even cut pieces of toffee and add to the garnish.

These variations of coffee are all easily made and would also be very much on the budget for most of the people. So enjoy the winters as you sip-away these hot drinks!
