Cafe Mocha

This is lovely as an after dinner drink, or on cold winter mornings.

Café Maria Theresa

Popular throughout Austria, this flavorful coffee is named for beloved Austrian empress Maria Theresa. From Viking River Cruises.

Masala Chai - Indian Spiced Milk Tea

Tea to most Indians is like coffee is to the Western world even though coffee is more famous in Southern India. This recipe is a simple cardamom studded "chai" that is a daily affair in India.

Homemade pumpkin lattes either spirited with hazelnut or amaretto liqueur which is optional! This easy pumpkin recipe may become your go-to in the morning.

Butterscotch Hot Cocoa

Lately I've shared several Taste of Home beverage recipes that have had major coffee appeal or used my much-loved crock pot. Now TOH has made me want hot cocoa again w/this show-stopping "beverage beauty" that literally had me drooling. This recipe was originally published as "Butterscotch Hot Cocoa" in Taste of Home's Holiday & Celebrations Cookbook Annual of 2010 on Pg 21. Enjoy!

French Toddy

From "The World Encyclopedia of Coffee" -- A variation of a very old French recipe. Enjoy!

Cinnamon Mocha

From Australian BH&G Diabetic Living issue 12 2007.

Raspberry Mocha

A raspberry flavored coffee. I use a French press but any brewed coffee would work. To make this diabetic friendly, use sugar-free coca mix and sugar-free raspberry syrup.

Cafe Au Lait Luzianna

The chicory coffee sets this apart from the usual cafe au lait/latte. You can buy it in larger supermarkets in cans (ground). Brew your favorite way. Prep time does not include brewing time. Add your favorite sweetener, if desired. Chicory can seem bitter if you are not used to it, but if you like dark roast coffee, you should like this.

Chocolate Peppermint Tea

I love this hot or over ice. You could try this with a hot cocoa packet or cocoa powder and more sweetener too. For Christmas time you could put a candy cane as a stirring stick or crushed peppermint candies over the whipped cream.

Maria Theresia Coffee

Another Austrian brew which is said to date back to empress Maria Theresia.
