Travels and Trying New Things
When I traveled to Washington DC with my husband in May, we stopped at an awesome Australian-inspired cafe called Bluestone Lane. They had this drink on the menu that I had never heard of before called a Beet Latte.
“What the heck is that?” I thought.
I suddenly remembered that, the day before, my business coach and friend, Tina Bangel, had told me she recently had a Beet Latte and suggested I try one.
So when the opportunity arose at Bluestone Lane cafe to try a Beet Latte, I jumped on it!
It was a muggy, summer day in DC, so I opted to get the Iced Beet Latte.
When the Iced Beet Latte arrived at the table, it was a vibrant shade of fuschia. It was topped with a sprinkling of cinnamon and smelled like a dessert. When I took my first sip of the Iced Beet Latte, I have to say, I was a bit underwhelmed. The flavor was very earthy, not very sweet and the cinnamon and ginger spices were very subtle.
I thought to myself, I can make a bold flavored Iced Beet Latte at home! So I set about to do it!
