Pour 8 ounces of dairy or an alternative milk into a saucepan or metal frothing pitcher. Steam the milk on the stove top, or use the frothing wand of an espresso machine. If you do not have flavored syrup, add 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract once the milk is heated.
In a coffee mug, add an ounce of vanilla or simple syrup. To make a simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and hot water, and stir the mixture. If you do not have vanilla-flavored syrup and do not want to make a simple syrup, add a few tablespoons of sugar to the milk while it is being heated.
Pour the steamed milk into the coffee mug, and stir the drink to mix in the syrup. If desired, top with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon. Drink the vanilla steamer while it is still hot.
