New Warm-You-Up Drinks
‘Tis the season for local coffee shops to drop their winter drinks menus. There is some good stuff out there this winter, like drinks that are packed with sweet, warm flavors and Christmassy comfort.
At The Workshop at Finley Farms, there are six new mouthwatering drinks: White Christmas cold brew, Spiced Eggnog latte, Butter Cookie latte, Fireside mocha, Cinnamon Bun latte and Mexican hot chocolate. That last one is made with Mexican chili syrup, ancho chili, cinnamon, clove and sea salt. The Fireside Mocha sounds like a sophisticated take on the classic, and it includes espresso, chocolate milk, orange peel rim and sea salt. We’re also excited to try the White Christmas. It starts with cold brew and also includes white chocolate syrup and winter mint cold foam.
Through the end of the month, it’s nog season at Kingdom Coffee. They make a mean batch of fresh eggnog, and they sell it by the glass or by the bottle. Bonus: You can get it as the dairy in the coffee drinks too and it’s oh-so-tasty.
Chance of Sno and Coffee has had their winter sips out for a few weeks, and they include the Cheggnog Latte (a chai and eggnog combo), a Snickerdoodle latte with hints of cinnamon, vanilla and cookie butter, a classic peppermint mocha and more.
For even more of that eggnog goodness, head to Eurasia Coffee Co.’s cafe for a latte that’s made with eggnog from Ozark Mountain Creamery. We’re also eying the gingerbread latte made with ginger and spices syrup.
Dancing Mule Coffee always has interesting homemade seasonal syrup flavors that you can add to your drinks. This winter, they have the expected eggnog and peppermint mocha. But they’ve thrown in a wild card with their fruit cake flavor, a mix of cherry, almond and orange. Interesting!
