A Summer Twist on Your Favoruite Drinks!

| Iced Nutella Latte & Salted Caramel Iced Latte |

At last, the weather's warmer, the sun is shinning and you're finally able to enjoy the outdoors! The only thing that's missing- a nice cold drink to accompany you in your glory! Seek no further than your kitchen to get your hands on these specialty Espresso based beverages- that can be enjoyed hot or cold!

Iced Nutella Latte
1 cup strong brewed coffee
1/2 cup milk (non-fat, 2%, or soy according to preference)
1 tablespoon Nutella
Ice cubes
Whipped cream, optional
Add the Nutella to the hot coffee and stir to dissolve. Refrigerate until cold. (As an option, you can make ice cubes out of leftover coffee to chill and serve immediately without diluting the coffee.)
Pour the coffee mixture and the milk into a tall glass of ice and stir. Top with a squirt of whipped cream, if desired.
One tablespoon of Nutella will make a latte that is not overly sweet. If you prefer a sweeter drink, you may add more or sweeten to taste.

Salted Caramel Iced Latte:
1 1/2 cups of coffee
1/4 cup caramel sauce, plus small amount for garnish
1/8 tsp kosher salt or sea salt, plus small amount for garnish
Ice cubes
Sugar, to taste
Creamer, half-and-half, or milk, to taste
Whipped cream, for garnish

Pour 1/4 cup of caramel sauce into mug or cup and
add hot coffee. Stir to mix. Add 1/8 tsp salt, ice cubes,
sugar, and creamer. Mix well. Top with whipped cream,
a drizzle caramel sauce, and a few sprinkles of salt all for garnish

Have a Beautiful Summer, and an Espresso Bella!
