Espresso Julep

We're always experimenting with innovative ways to showcase our responsibly-sourced coffees with unexpected seasonal flavor pairings. Our Espresso Mint Julep, featured in Imbibe and Refinery29 is made with house made basil-mint syrup, textured milk and a double shot of Elevate espresso served over ice. 
The summery herbs in the simple syrup are definitely a bit unexpected, but they pair really well with the espresso without overpowering its nuances. The result is a very refreshing drink that's complex and not overly sweet.
