Chilling out this Spring!

Spring is here! That means flowers, rain, cool breezes and sunshine. You may be thinking that drinking a hot latte is not appropriate for this kind of weather, so our gelatistas wanted to give you some options to consider. All week on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram we have been hinting at this blog post, so here it is!

The first drink is sweet with a hint of nuttiness and suggested by our Ann Arbor location gelatista, Katie Beth. The Iced Nutella Latte is cold milk (or milk alternative), espresso and Nutella. It is good if you like sweet espresso beverages and perfect for our Nutella enthusiasts!

The most unique option is a Coca-Cola over ice with a shot of espresso. I was hesitant to try this but our East Lansing gelatista insisted that I would love it. She was right! It was the perfect combination of the tanginess of Coca-Cola and the espresso aftertaste. It takes a brave person to try it, but is 100% worth it.

Our Ann Arbor store manager Matt, loves a cold brew over ice with a shot of chocolate and caramel sauce. This drink would have a stronger coffee taste than a latte, which includes milk, but the sweetness of the sauces balances it out nicely. If you have a long day ahead of you and need some caffeine, this is the drink for you.

My own suggestion is an Earl Grey Tea over ice with honey and soy milk. It is a really refreshing creamy beverage with a very unique flavor. I drink it every day, even in the winter. It is a good option for our non-coffee drinkers out there. If Earl Grey isn’t the tea for you, try any of our available hot teas over ice.

Our final gelatista suggestion comes from Rachel in East Lansing. She likes the Iced Caffe Miele, which is an iced latte with honey and cinnamon. This sweet approach to your morning will leave you feeling ready to take on the day, but without the sugar rush.

If you have any questions about iced beverages, or you want to know if your favorite hot beverage can be made cold, ask your gelatista!
