Welcome to a new series here on Distillerista! Each week I’ll be sharing a shorter format post reviewing one thing I tried over the previous week. It may be a cocktail, a non-alcoholic drink, a product, a spirit, or a recipe. Just a little something I enjoyed and want to share so you can too!
This week I’m sharing a non-alcoholic bevvy! I’m trying to cut back my caffeine consumption to one coffee a day and since I typically always have a morning coffee at home, I’m always looking for interesting non-coffee based lattes or specialty tea drinks when I’m out and about at a coffee shop. This past weekend after perusing our local farmers’ market, it was a bit chilly out and we were feeling a nice warm coffee before heading home.
We ducked into Frost Me Gourmet, a relatively new little cafe and bistro in our neighborhood and I immediately lit up when I saw the ginger turmeric cappuccino! It’s essentially a warm infused almond milk beverage that can be served “dirty,” if you prefer, that is with a shot of espresso. I opted for dirty but with a decaf shot and it was delicious! Perfectly frothy and creamy (as almond milk sometimes has trouble with), with just the perfect amount of earthy and warming spice from the ginger and turmeric. Just the thing for a chilly winter morning!
