Do you LOVE  coffee?  Are you looking for something new to drink at your local coffee shop?  Try these off the menu favorites.

For the most part your barista  should know how to make these drinks but if not all you have to do is tell them whats in the recipes below.

Green Eye

A Red Eye or Black Eye, sure — that’s one and two extra shots of espresso in a regular drip, respectively. But those that go for green get a sure-to-jack-you-up three shots of espresso boost to their cup of coffee.

 

Dirty Chai

chai latte (hot or iced) with a shot of espresso added in. And if you want two shots? That’s called a “Double Dirty” or “Extra Dirty” Chai.

 

Zebra Mocha

Sometimes also called a “Penguin Mocha,” this drink combines the white chocolate mocha with the regular mocha for those who can’t pick a favorite. Or, if you really want to take it to the next level, ask to have raspberry flavoring added for something called the “Red Tux” Mocha.

 

 

Chocolate Dalmatian

A White Chocolate Mocha with java chips and chocolate chips sprinkled in.

 

 

Cake Batter Frappuccino

Perhaps a little deceptively named, as there are no actual pieces of cake or cake batter in it, this beverage vanilla and almond syrup to a Vanilla Frappuccino.

 

 

 

Captain Crunch Frappuccino

No, this doesn’t involve bringing the childhood-favorite cereal into the store and asking them to blend it in a frappe. Still, fans say that the combination of hazelnut syrup (though some folks contend it should be toffee nut) in a Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino is a dead ringer for the flavor of the cereal.
