Singapore’s cold/wet weather is finally here which means warm, Christmassy drinks are flooding our coffee houses. Check out some of our favourite festive offerings from coffee houses around Singapore.
This was a big surprise! The sauce was light, not to creamy, so it went very well with the tender and flavourful turkey chunks. They were very generous with the parmesan too. A must have during rainy weather.
Red Velvet Latte
This is not anything new, but old is gold, and this is a coffee bean classic. The only way to drink it is to have it hot. Have it ice blended or iced and you’ll think it’s too sweet. It’s perfect warm and topped with lots of whipped cream.
I don’t know about you guys, but I love the burnt caramel flavours of Lotus biscuits. This cheesecake has the lotus biscuit flavour packed into a dense, smooth cake topped with delicious crumbs!
Double Chocolate Peppermint
The peppermint taste is just a light hint that compliments the rich double chocolate taste. It tastes so good, I had two cups of these. Ice blended of course. It’s way too mild has a hot drink.
The newest Christmas drink at Starbucks it is a smash hit! It’s pretty low on stock at the moment, but if you can, try to get it. It’s fantastic. For folks who don’t like gingerbread, you’ll still like this one cause gingerbread taste actually balances well with the overwhelming sweetness of Starbucks’s frappes. So get it cold, get it hot everything it is amazingggg.
Sticky Ginger Date Pudding
So… great… Get it warm and have it together with the gingerbread latte. You’ve got yourself a perfect tea-time snack. The pudding is moist, like a rich dense cake, and topped with toffee (or caramel?) and candied ginger. So addictive.
Toffee Nut Latte
This is the ultimate Christmas drink to me. Simply because it’s the base for Starbucks’ secret drink: Butterbeer. I can only get it every Christmas, so I make full use of it. Here’s the recipe guys: Toffee Nut Frappuccino (grande size), add 3 pumps of caramel syrup and top with whipped cream and a caramel drizzle. I know, it’s basically sugar overload, but that’s why they only sell it once a year right?
JOE & DOUGH
Santa’s Christmas Sandwich
This was interesting. The bread, is made of purple sweet potatoes and has chucks of orange sweet potatoes imbedded into the loaf. So the loaf is really moist and has interesting textures with every bite. It also goes so well with the turkey ham, caramelised onions and other parts of the sandwich!
Most coffee places have Stollen, but none as delicious as the one at Joe & Dough. It looked so unassuming, basically a large lump of dough tossed in powder sugar. But slice into the dense loaf, and you hit a treasure trove of fruits, nuts and rich bread. Kinda almost like cake. So delicious!
Turkey Cranberry Sandwich
Cranberry and turkey are by far the best combination ever. It was just a simple heart sandwich that filled my tummy that evening.
I don’t know if it’s that “generous” gold flakes that make it a billionaire tart, but it was definitely extremely rich. It looks boring, but the inside hides molten carmel and a rich chocolate crust.
They actually blend popcorn pieces inside so you get that chewy, delicious popcorn taste with every sip of the sweet ice blended drink!
