Holiday Drinks Made Easy With Torani! #2016HolidayGiftGuide


How many of you enjoy all the holiday beverages that come out during the fall and winter? Yes, my hand is raised! From the beginning of September when Pumpkin Spice makes its annual debut, to as long as our local Starbucks carries the ingredients for peppermint white mochas, caramel creme brûlée and any of their other holiday drinks, I make frequent stops. Well, I actually make frequent stops any time of year, because, I have to admit it - I'm kind of a gourmet coffee addict. Yes, all those "froufrou" drinks some coffee drinkers turn their noses up at. I do enjoy a good cup of black coffee, but I also love some good "frou-frou"! However, when you want to enjoy these coffees every day, it gets expensive. Don't worry though, there's an alternative - and it makes for wonderful holiday party beverages, as well as the perfect gift for any coffee addicts on your gift list! Torani Syrups offers everyone the possibility of becoming a barista at home, and you'd be amazed at how good these syrups taste!

I received a bottle of Torani's White Chocolate Syrup and Sugar-Free Raspberry Syrup. These are perfect for pairing with each other, separately, or for any other of a dozen more options! My personal favorite is the raspberry white mocha combination. A friend told me about this drink a few months ago, and I have been hooked ever since! A venti raspberry white mocha runs 6.00-6.50 depending on the cafe, so it gets expensive super quick. However, two bottles of Torani syrup, espresso or strong brewed coffee, and some half and half and you can make your own at home for very little cost and any time you want! I've also enjoyed trying some other flavors. Peppermint white mocha is a very popular holiday beverage, so I've enjoyed making these at home with Torani syrups as well. Add a tablespoon of white chocolate syrup and a tablespoon of peppermint syrup and you've got the perfect holiday drink!



These syrups aren't just for coffee drinks, either. I love making raspberry lemonade at home. Mix up a pitcher of lemonade, add raspberry syrup to taste, and serve over ice! This is one of my favorite summer beverages, but I even enjoy it over the winter.

So, whether you're looking to add some flavor to your coffee this holiday season, or have a friend who would love to be an at-home barista, you can't go wrong with Torani syrups! You can find Torani products online, or use their store locator to find a store near you. Be sure to check out their recipe section as well for inspiration. Coffees are just the beginning of all the fun you can have with Torani syrups!
