We tasked Brandi with creating some non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated drinks to expand our repertoire, so she opted for a summer-inspired Italian soda! Watch as she crafts this deliciously creamy, berry-infused drink.
Fill glass with ice. Pour 1/2 of the Blueberry syrup over ice then fill the glass 3/4 full with the sparkling water/club soda. Pour the remaining syrup into the glass and then add cream/half & half to taste. Top with fresh blueberries and enjoy!
If we leave Brandi to her own devices, she just causes trouble for everyone. And, in this case, that trouble is in the format of a ridiculously delicious vodka cocktail that is perfectly refreshing and the best choice for your breakfast, lunch or dinner beverage all summer long. While she used Monin’s Blackberry syrup, we’re pretty sure this will go great with any of their berry syrups — strawberry, raspberry, blueberry … heck, we’ll even give a nod to mango.
We are hearty here in the Pacific Northwest, and if you’re not okay with camping in damp environs, then you’d never get to camp! But we understand that there are some among us who don’t have the same level of fortitude, and soggy days are not camp-friendly. For you we have created this lovely drink which, in combination with Kaylie’s Espresso Graham Cracker cookies, effectively channels everyone’s favorite camp time treat: S’mores!
Last weekend, we had wonderfully unseasonable warm and sunny weather which almost made us think summer was quick upon us! And then April returned in all her damp glory. So even though the days are getting longer in the Pacific Northwest, we’re still looking for something cozy to warm us up a bit. This yummy white chocolate cocoa is just the ticket!
No matter how much we try to coerce him, our trusty purchasing manager, Nick, will not perform Rapper’s Delight for us while drinking this ridiculously awesome drink. We never get to do what we want to do!
What makes this drink nearly obscene is that it’s a breve, so when you’re steaming up six ounces of half-and-half and adding it to a bunch of sugary syrup and espresso, best not to have any reflective surfaces around. You’ll be able to live with yourself better.

It’s spring time, friends, and that means bunnies around the world are hard at work producing delicious chocolate candy eggs for your enjoyment. Brandi tried her hand at recreating the delicious flavor of these treats in this lovely latte — produced almost effortlessly on the Rancilio Egro.
While they say it’s supposed to be spring these days, we don’t quite buy into it yet as we’re still dealing with sleet and ice! What better way to channel a lovely spring day than by rockin’ an iced coffee drink? We love the blend of chocolate-nutty-spice in this smooth drink o’ latte.
When Brandi selected this rather innocuous (and very delicious!) drink from Monin’s website, she had no idea that we had posted this several months back and dubbed it with such a humorous, and completely unrelated, moniker. But she’s nothing if not a good sport! So she whipped up a Fresh Faced Filly and enjoyed it with one of Kaylie’s delicious Chocolate Espresso Cookies with Walnuts.
