Some Like It Hot

Toasty Drinks for the Chilly Days Ahead

There is nothing like a hot drink to warm the body and soul. Finally, after what has been an ultra-extended period of heat advisories, it is finally cool enough outside to properly enjoy them! Here are some local favorites.

Passionfruit Caramel Latte

WHERE: 4501 N. 32nd St., Phoenix

WHAT: Although it only opened a few years ago, Provision has quickly made a name for itself as a premier local coffee roaster in the region. Among its most impressive hot offerings is its Passionfruit Caramel Latte, which starts with freshly brewed espresso. That is paired with scratch-made caramel syrup infused with both passionfruit and bourbon, and then finished with steamed milk and an orange twist. $8
