Each drink can be made with your favorite specialty coffees (or teas) or hot chocolate for the kiddos.

So let’s start the list!

  1. Mint White Chocolate Mocha


  • 0,2 dcl brewed coffee
  • 2 dcl of milk
  • 50 grams of withe chocolate
  • Few leaves of mint or a mint extract
  • marshmallow for decoration


  • Heat the milk and melt the chocolate in a low heat.
  • Add coffee and mint leaves. Stir.
  • Garnish with roasted marshmallows.
  1. Caramelized Honey Latte

Honey Caramel Sauce

  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 4 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 stick (4 tbsp.) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • 1 cup of steamed milk
  • 2 oz. espresso or strong coffee


  • Start by making the honey caramel sauce. In a small sauce pan, heat whipping cream over medium heat until boiling.
  • In a separate medium sauce pan, combine sugar, water, and honey. Heat over medium heat until boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low, and let cook for five to eight minutes without stirring, until the mixture turns a dark amber color.
  • Slowly add in the heated whipping cream to the pan, and stir continually. It will bubble over, so be careful. Lower the heat and continue stirring for about 10 minutes, to give the mixture the slow-cooked taste. Set aside to cool.
  • In the serving glass, add two ounces of espresso or strong coffee. Mix in two tablespoons of honey caramel sauce.
  • Add in steamed milk. Serve immediately.

  • Pour the espresso or strong brewed coffee into a large mug.
  • Stir in Hazelnut Syrup, Chocolate Syrup, and Vanilla Syrup.
  • Froth warm milk (about 30 seconds) over a stove top using a whisk.
  • Pour warm frothed milk into the espresso (or coffee) concoction, top with whipped cream and chocolate sauce for an extra touch of sweetness. Serve and enjoy!


  • 1 Cup of Strong-Brewed Coffee or 2 Shots of Espresso
  • 2 Tbsp of Caramel Syrup
  • 1 Cup of Milk (or milk substitute)
  • 2 Tbsp of Sweetener (sugar, brown sugar, honey, etc.)
  • 1 Tbsp of Cocoa Powder
  • Caramel Sauce* for drizzling
  • Whipped Cream
  • ⅛ Tsp of Sea Salt
