Winter Cheer is here
Tuesday, December 1, 2015
This winter, we're committed to keeping you warm and full of good cheer, no matter how frozen and bleak the landscape outside. Our coffee shops winter drink lineup features all the best of the season's flavors—stop by and find your favorite!
Our “Heat Miser” lives up to the promises, or threats, depending on your perspective, of its namesake, “Whatever I touch starts to melt in my clutch,” sings the Heat Miser in the 1970s claymation seasonal feature. We promise that this drink will melt the ice from your gloves and thaw the coldest toes. Take our darkest, most moody cocoa (we're paying tribute to Elliot Smith's first band here too), add a little cinnamon, a raucous riff of chipotle chiles, and a dash of cardamom. Put it together, and it's the perfect antidote to the winter blues, guaranteed to melt the icicles and warm you through and through.
Our Rosebud latte pays tribute to the bittersweet nostalgia that comes along with the season, brought on by holidays, or too many old movie marathons to pass the dark days. “Rosebud,” the final word of Orson Welles' hero in Citizen Kane, the memory of his childhood sled, and long-gone innocent joys. Think on your own favorite memories gone by and wishes for the New Year, while you sip the on this sweet and savory latte imbued with housemade rosemary and fresh tumeric syrup.
