Simple coffee drink you can get at Starbucks, or any coffee shop that can make espresso.
A ristretto shot is a double strength espresso shot.
The drink is close to being a latte.
Since the Coke Blak is no longer available in stores you might be able to recreate this amazing coffee soda at home.
We cannot promise you will think this is really a Coke Blak, but it is close.
Here is what you need:
1 can of diet cream soda
1 of these STOK shots
You may want to add a sweetener since the original Coke Blak was sweetened, but less than the sweetener in a regular coke.
You can also try this recipe with a regular cream soda.
Note – it will taste awful in a regular …
Some say that this is an espresso that has been ‘corrected’ by adding brandy.
1 shot of Brandy
A coffee drink made with chocolate and cinnamon.
To make this coffee:
2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup
1/2 cup of whipped cream
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 cups of black coffee (hot)
Start: Mix the chocolate syrup, whipped cream, 1/4 tablespoon of cinnamon, brown sugar, and pinch of nutmeg in a bowl.
Pour the hot black coffee into the mixing bowl. That is it – pour in to coffee cups and drink!
This makes four cups of coffee. Use whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon on top of each cup of coffee. You don’t have to …
Another espresso drink that is not very different from a regular Espresso. This is about 1 oz of liquid, made using the same amount of espresso grounds you use to make a standard espresso.
You get the same amount of caffeine from an Espresso Ristretto as you do with a standard espresso, but in a much stronger format.
This coffee drink is not very unique as it is just a double dose of espresso, which is about 5oz of espresso.
It isn’t double strength, just a double espresso. Similar to a Caffe Americano, but instead of adding hot water to the espresso, you add an espresso to the espresso. Just a fancy way of saying Double Espresso.
What you need:
An Espresso maker
Milk (skim – whole, your choice)
Sugar (1-3 tbs) or 4 packets of Splenda
optional empty Starbucks Frappuccino glass container
Brew the espresso (2 shots)
Pour into glass container
Drink when ready
It is best to only add the milk after the espresso is chilled,
or add when you are ready to drink.
If the frappuccino is too strong, just drink some and add more milk until it looks like
a Starbucks Frappuccino
The basic ingredients on the back of the container are:
pectin (to ‘thicken’ the mixture)
Whole milk will help thicken the …
Authentic Thai coffee is called Oliang. The easiest way to make Thai Coffee is to use Oliang Power Mix. The Oliang powder looks like regular coffee grounds, just not as finely ground. The mix contains Coffee, Corn, and Soya Bean. This can be found in most Asian Markets, or use the links below.
To make Thai coffee:
4 tablespoons of Oliang mix
1 cup boiling water
3-4 teaspoons of sugar
Whole Milk, or Half and Half

1 lemon strip
Ok, this one is real easy too. It is just and espresso with a thin curly lemon peel. You will want is as the lemon curl, and not shredded – you want to be able to drink it without eating the lemon shreds.
The curly lemon peel also looks super cool hanging out of your cup.
The Lemon Peel can Sometimes be Crystalized
Super simple to make! The name makes is sound super fancy but it is just an espresso topped with a spoonful of milk foam. It is more for looks than for taste. Getting an espresso macchiato in a cup with a lid makes no sense since you can’t even show everyone how cool you are paying an extra .75 cents for foamed milk on your espresso.
Drink up, buddy.
1 part espresso
4 parts foam
Kinda silly that a drink like this has a ‘special’ name. Yes, there is also something called a ‘wet cappuccino’ – it is just equal parts espresso, foam, and steamed milk. If you’ve made a regular cappuccino you probably made one of these wet cappuccinos by mistake. If you tried to make a cappuccino but couldn’t get the milk to foam then you end up with a cafe latte. You pretty much can’t mess up – any mix of espresso, foam, and steamed milk is a …
1 shot espresso
Super simple, with a fancy name. Just as simple as the Espresso Macchiato except you top the espresso with whipped cream instead of foamed milk. Top with a LOT if your are feelin’ crazy! Con Panna means “with cream” in Italian. Now, don’t you feel super educated?
2 parts espresso
1 steamed milk
Similar to a cafe latte. Easy to remember: CAP, as in a CAP of foam on top: CAPPUCCINO. Actually the ratio of espresso to steamed milk can vary – some will make it with equal parts espresso, milk, and foam. It is all a matter of taste. A real cappuccino is more coffee than milk.
1 part espresso
1 1/2 part steamed milk
Ah, such confusion with this and a Cappuccino. This is just like a Cappuccino except you don’t add the foamed milk on top. You COULD just order a cappuccino and say NO FOAM. You could be complicated and order a Cafe Latte and ask for FOAM. If you get foam without asking then THEY made it wrong. Either way, a cafe latte and cappuccino taste the same.
