Caffe D’Vita Irish Creamtini

When done right, a chilled martini can be the perfect thing at the end of a long day. One particularly favorable quality of a martini is that the variations on this drink seem to know no end or boundary.

While experimenting with various ways to create the perfect martini—try adding Caffe D’Vita’s Irish Cream powdered cappuccino mix to the blend. Smooth and delicious, our Irish Creamtini is just sweet enough to counteract the bitter flavor of the gin or vodka without overpowering it. Try this recipe:

In a metal martini shaker, add:

2 oz of prepared Caffe D’Vita Irish Cream mix

2 oz of vodka

A splash of very chilled Martini & Rossi Dry Vermouth

A lemon twist

Crushed Ice (a note about this: Cubed is fine, but Crushed will make it colder)

½ oz Vanilla syrup (this part is optional)

Take the glass out of the fridge (you should chill it for about 10 minutes before using it), and pour a small amount of the vermouth into it. Swirl the vermouth in the glass that the sides of the glass are coated. Discard the vermouth. Rim the glass with the lemon twist. Pour your gin or vodka into a shaker over lots of ice. Shake well until cold and pour into the martini glass. Twist the lemon, well, twist over the martini and balance it along the rim (or just drop it in the glass the way you would in the case of a cosmo).

If you don’t like the lemon and cream flavor/texture combo, try rimming the glass with chocolate sauce and dusting a bit of cinnamon on top of the martini. You can use olives, but it’s not really recommended.

Spring into Strawberry Season with a Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie

Celebrate this year’s strawberry season with this delicious recipe for a Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie using Caffe D’Vita’s rich and creamy Vanilla Base and fresh, juicy strawberries.

Serve this smoothie in a glass with cool whip and a fresh strawberry garnish or pour it on top of pound cake cupcakes (cupcakes should only be ½ full after being baked) and keep them in the freezer with a layer of cool whip for a delightful frozen treat.

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base

¾ cup water (or almond milk)

1 ½ cups cubed ice

2 cups fresh strawberries, halved

1 teaspoon orange blossom honey

Splash of orange juice (or pineapple juice)

Directions:

Take the strawberries out of the fridge for about half an hour before you want to make your smoothie. By allowing them to come up to room temperature, you’ll bring out a lot more flavor from the berries.

When you are ready to serve, place all of the ingredients into your blender receptacle of choice and blitz until smooth. Use a dash of whichever juice you used in the recipe if you want to adjust the consistency.

Made from only premium ingredients, our kosher vanilla base is gluten free and has a long shelf life. At Caffe D’Vita, we guarantee that our vanilla base will produce accurate serving results every time.

Ring in the New Year with Caffe D‘Vita’s Premium Cappuccino Drinks

The celebration of New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day dates back as far as 153 BC. The use of January 1st as the official date stems from Julius Caesar’s calendar reform back in 46 BC, when he switched the Roman calendar from a lunar-based system to a solar-based one. It was this calendar reformation that earned him the honor of having his birth month (July) named after him. While the date changed for a short while during the Middle Ages, January 1st has marked a new calendar year ever since.

2,056 years later, New Year’s still ushers in a high-spirited sense of renewal across the globe. Glasses clink and cheers ring high as people all over the world watch the infamous New Years Eve Ball drop over Times Square.

Caffe D’Vita Enchanted Chai Tea Latte

Caffe D’Vita Enchanted Chai Tea Latte: A Taste of India According to legend, an Indian king first introduced chai to his royal courts around 5,000 years ago. Originally, chai was used as cleansing tonic meant to alleviate a number of ailments.

The ancients, it turns out, were onto something. The antioxidants found naturally in black tea have been shown in some studies to help fight cancers, lower cholesterol, reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and lower blood pressure. These same studies suggest antioxidants are useful in preventing heart diseases and strokes while possibly boosting your immune system. When blended with ginger, chai can ward off colds, soothe the digestive and respiratory systems, and can even prevent motion sickness. Cinnamon can work as a stimulant to other herbs, enabling them to work faster.

Chai gradually became a popular recreational beverage. Recipes for chai (which derives from “cha”, the Chinese word for tea) change depending on the region and manner in which it is being served. Typically, however, chai is comprised of loose black tea leaves that are boiled with milk, water, and either honey or “Masala” sugar. There is a version, called Kashmiri chai, which is brewed with gunpowder tea (green tea where each leaf is rolled into a tiny pellet that resembles the gunpowder used in cannons).

Almost all chai–especially Masala Chai–is spiced with a unique combination of cinnamon, black pepper, anise, cloves, cardamom and ginger. It is also often prepared with almonds, saffron, vanilla, carob, and even licorice. In India, chai is brewed in huge kettles over small charcoal fires. The drink – which is served more frequently than even coffee – is then served in containers that are smashed afterwards. It is the unglazed aspect to the pots that provide an earthy flavor to the chai.

With the advent of the neighborhood coffeehouse trend, chai’s popularity continues to rise as more people come to appreciate its unique aroma and flavor. Caffe D’Vita’s Enchanted Chai Tea Latte provides a comforting blend of exotic teas, spices and milk that can be enjoyed anytime. Serve it hot, iced, or blended for the perfect premium Chai Frappe or it can be added to baked goods like muffins and cakes.

At Caffe D’Vita, you can pick between either classic spiced chai or vanilla chai. Each is delicious and can be purchased in either a two pound venpak bag (12 pounds total) or in single serve envelopes.

Caffe D’Vita remains dedicated to the idea of developing and producing only the finest premium products with outstanding customer service. We listen to our customers and we continue to pursue new and exciting products for your enjoyment.

By Kara Mae Adamo

Walking briskly through the streets, you can smell it. The cinnamon brooms hung on doors – the smell of freshly brewed cappuccino and coffee. Leaves are just on the brink of changing – building up to their brilliant, fiery crescendo of light and color before the winter’s end. Brisk autumn wind has begun swirling through in the mornings and at night. Daylight is charmed with bright blue skies and light jackets.

Among the many images of fall, pumpkins rein king. Pumpkin pies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin soups, pumpkin ales and even pumpkin pancakes and pumpkin raviolis have shown up in restaurants and coffee houses from coast to coast. Served hot or cold, in dinner, desserts, or drinks, the spicy sweetness of pumpkin can be found everywhere. A North American native, the pumpkin has been an integral part of the holiday tradition for centuries.

Make A Delicious Caramel Latte Blended Iced Coffeehouse Drink At Home

The blended iced caramel latte is probably the most popular frozen beverage served in coffee houses and cafes all over the United States. Here is a recipe you can make at home with Caffe D’Vita’s Caramel Latte Blended Iced mix

Caramel Latte Blended Iced Coffeehouse Beverage Recipe

Makes 1 – 12oz beverage
Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup fresh Espresso or brewed coffee, cold or room temperature
  • 1/3 cup milk (low-fat or non-fat milk foams up better than whole milk, you can also use soy milk)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons Caffe D’Vita Caramel Latte Blended Iced mix
  • 2/3 glass of crushed ice

    Optional

  • Caramel syrup
  • Whipped cream
  • Straw

Directions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. You don’t need a commercial blender.
  2. Blend using low speed then high speed to the consistency of “mud”. If you get “stuck”, use your “pulse control” and add more liquid
  3. Pour into glass and add syrup and whipped cream to taste

Getting the right combination of ingredients and the right consistency takes a little practice but soon you will be making these drinks and all of their variations for friends and family.

Want to cut the calories? Forgo the extra caramel, whipped cream and use non-fat milk or just water. Also, keep an eye on portion size. A 120z. portion should be enough to satisfy most home users although coffee houses serve 12, 16 and 24 oz. versions. Cost difference between homemade and coffee house versions might be as much as a $3.50 savings per drink!
