Coming from a Barista who gets asked several times a day what my personal recommendations are, I thought I would share some of my favorite, and most popular drinks!
1. If you are a caffeine addict like I am, you must know about an an Americano, but try it over ice and add a fun summer flavor like a little white chocolate or almond… Heck, mix them together!
2. Going with the caffeine theme, a good old fashioned Cold Brew can never go wrong! This is miles beyond just regular iced coffee (which is hot coffee chilled in the fridge), because the grounds are seeped in cold water for hours. The flavor intensity will blow your mind. Try adding coconut flavor with that and let me know if you like it!
3. If you haven’t tried an Italian Soda, your summer isn’t complete! It’s refreshing, delicious, and depending on the syrup you choose, wont break the calorie bank.
4. My personal favorite, however, would be an Iced Dirty Vanilla Chai (which is just chai mix with a shot of espresso). Don’t let the name intimidate you, this will always be my all time favorite drink. No lie, I drink this almost everyday! I highly recommend the smalltime producer Ebenezers Coffeehouse uses: Big Train. I have spotted it randomly in stores like TJ Maxx and Marshalls and always make sure to snag it because its so hard to find.
