When we were just a little pop up in Endeavor Arts Gallery, we experimented with a variety of holiday themed drinks. We started with Monin’s Pumpkin Spice Syrup to create the Pumpkin Spice Latte, and then we worked with a local artisan, Sandra of The Beehive, to create a locally source pumpkin spice syrup that featured honey as the sweetener. It easily defeated Monin’s flavored syrup – it had just the right amount of sweetness and spice without overpowering our caffe lattes.

Then, we began our own journey in food alchemy and created our own Winter Spice – a concoction of the warming spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger mingling with the sweetness of brown sugar and our own vanilla extract. It pairs perfect with Calgary Heritage Roasting Company’s Indonesian coffee beans!
