Mocha Latte Recipe

For the chocolate, and whisky (optional) lover!

Time needed - 10 minutes

Tools needed:

What we can't stand about most Mocha Latte recipes is the fact that they simply use heated half-and-half and call it a "latte". A latte, by definition, requires steamed milk, not lazily heated milk in a sauce pan. You don't walk into Starbucks, order up a latte and get heated milk. No, you get steamed milk. Let's do this right!
