Cappuccino Recipes & Ideas for Your Wedding
Sep 23, 2011
Cappuccino is a delicious drink, and with fall rolling in, the perfect way to warm up in the chilly weather! Of course, you can always take a trip to your local Starbucks to get a little pick-me-up, but if you’re a true coffee lover with an espresso machine, why not make your very own cappuccino right at home? Here are some great cappuccino recipes for you to enjoy this season – at home or at your wedding!
Making a cappuccino is really very simple, but some say it takes practice to get it just right. Simply brew an espresso, add an equivalent amount of hot milk, then milk foam to the top and voila – a delicious cappuccino! Of course, not all of us have an espresso machine right in our kitchen, so instant cappuccino is always a great alternative – you can purchase a mix at a grocery store and simply add hot water.
You can always make an iced cappuccino, a wet cappuccino (with more milk) or a dry cappuccino (with less milk) to change it up. Or, you can add a tablespoon of hot cocoa mix for a more delectable drink. And you can always add some flavored syrups to the drink, such as caramel, mocha or even pumpkin for something really original!
Create a cappuccino bar at your wedding with different syrup flavors, chocolate shavings, nutmeg, cinnamon sticks and much more for your guests to create their own special cappuccino. You can even hire an experienced barista (that’s Italian for “bartender”) to create beautiful latte art into the foam at the top – such as a heart, leaves for your autumn affair, or even your monogram initials!
Check out our cappuccino favors for personalized packets of the drink mix to give your guests. You may even want to pair them up with our personalized Biscotti cookies, which can be found with our cookie wedding favors – after all, cappuccino originated in Italy too!
