Father's Day Float!

Just in time for Fathers Day, we decided to share with you one of our new favorite recipes that is "Dad approved". We discovered this tasty delight at one of our favorite local coffee shops, Crema, in Pacific Grove. Ivy was a little wiry of this concoction when Eve ordered it from the menu but after taking a sip herself, Ivy decided it was delicious. We didn't get this recipe from Crema, but it tastes pretty darn close! Their espresso shot was super smooth (which was delicious) whereas our espresso was a bit more intense. It totally depends on your preferences. Its fairly simple to make however we recommend trying it out at Crema yourself first. We made this for our Dad before we left for Europe as an early Fathers Day treat. We think any Dad (or beer lover will love this sweet treat!
