Recipe For Travel: Miami Café Con Leche

We may not be able to board a plane right now, but we can create drinks and dishes that transport us to some of our favourite destinations! Greater Miami’s Hispanic connection dates back nearly 100 years. In fact, Cuban Americans make up 60 per cent of the total Miami Hispanic population, and the Cuban flair is felt deeply within the city's culinary scene. A prime example of this is Cuban coffee, which has become synonymous with breakfast in Miami. Cuban coffee can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, Cafecito, Colada, Cortadito and Café Con Leche—the latter being a Miami staple! Below, Miami-native Stephanie Pernas shares her recipe to make this classic Miami morning staple in (your) house. —Vita Daily

Café Con Leche

Evaporated milk
2 tbsp sugar

Brew your espresso (preferably in a stovetop espresso pot). Steam your milk. You can either heat up the evaporated milk on the stovetop or microwave it. Measure out your sugar and then add a splash of coffee to the sugar and stir until melted. This whole process is really important and helps get the sugar to the consistency it needs to be to melt into the coffee. Pour the sugar back into the coffee and stir. Pour the coffee into your milk (typically 50/50 mixture)—et voila! Enjoy an authentic Cuban Café Con Leche!
