The Queens Chariot – A Coffee & Cocktails with Cindy short

Galliano the most popular liqueur of the 1970s, is composed of sweet vanilla and anisette upper notes and citrusy, woodsy/juniper undertones. This flavorful combination of more than 30 herbs (the exact combination being a meticulously guarded secret) pairs remarkably well with The Queen Bean's espresso. I am revisiting our textured, earthy friend Galliano by combining it with espresso, cream, and chocolate liqueur. The result is an unusual and flavorful cocktail. Enjoy!

Ginger is a fantastic flavor boost for coffee. Widely recognized for its health benefits, especially as it pertains to stomach issues, ginger also adds a wonderfully sweet and earthy flavor to your cup. Today I have combined ginger with two other health-boosting ingredients - honey and cinnamon. The result is a palate-pleasing, immune-boosting and decidedly healthy twist on your favorite morning libation. Enjoy!

Healthy coconut cinnamon latte

The health and wellness benefits of coffee are often touted. Here they are given a boost with the addition of cinnamon and coconut milk. Cinnamon, in addition to having that wonderful aroma and flavor that blends so naturally with coffee, is also loaded with antioxidants and is said to have anti-inflammatory properties. Also, it has been linked to both a reduction in heart disease and cancer. Coconut milk has been shown to boost your immune system, help with weight loss, and increase heart health. It also adds a natural sweetness and creaminess to your coffee without adding any extra cholesterol. By combining these ingredients, we have upped the ante on your morning libation. This is one powerful, health-boosting, frothy delight of a latte. Enjoy!
