If you’ve checked out our summer ’15 seasonal menu, you’ve heard about our newest summer drink – a Vanilla Bean Shaken Iced Latte. Not to be mistaken for your average iced coffee, this latte is our take on an Italian specialty – the shakerato.

Traditionally, a shakerato is made by pouring a shot of espresso over ice, adding simple syrup and then shaking in a cocktail shaker until the mix transforms into a frothy confection. The resulting drink is as bright-tasting as it is refreshing, and oh-so-perfect for steamy summer days.

We’re shaking up our recipe by replacing simple syrup with homemade vanilla bean syrup. Paired with our organic espresso and topped with your milk of choice, this latte is sure to become your new go-to – for the summer, at least!
