Coffee chains debut holiday treats
Dunn Brothers Coffee
As the weather outside gets colder, one way to warm up is with holiday drinks from a coffee shop.
Dunn Brothers Coffee introduces three drinks and candy cane brownie bites for the season. The spiced eggnog nirvana is black coffee and half and half with added flavors of cinnamon and vanilla. The candy cane mocha, a returning flavor, is a white chocolate mocha with added peppermint flavor. You can also add whipped cream to the mocha or nirvana for an extra treat. Lastly, the almondine tea latte is sweet vanilla tea mixed with steamed almond milk. If you’re looking for a more classic treat, hot chocolate is always a good option.
Starbucks also introduces three speciality holiday drinks that can be enjoyed hot, iced, or blended as a frappuccino. The peppermint mocha is a mix of chocolate and peppermint with espresso and steamed milk. You can top this treat with whipped cream and chocolate curls. The caramel brulee latte is based with espresso and steamed milk mixed with a caramel sauce topped with whipped cream and caramelized sugar to add an extra crunch. The last drink from Starbucks is the toasted white chocolate mocha. This drink is caramelized white chocolate with espresso and steamed milk finished off with whipped cream and cranberry sugar. Additional offerings from Starbucks include the eggnog latte, gingerbread latte, and the holiday spice flat white.
Coffee shops are a great environment to spend a cold winter day reading a book, working on homework, or chatting with friends.
