In honor of Valentine’s Day, the Library Cafe has added three themed drinks to their menu: the Love Mocha, Cupid’s Smoothie and I Love You, A Latte! These drinks will only be on the menu until Feb. 28, so make sure to pick one up while they’re still there.
The Love Mocha is espresso based, filled with the perfect blend of cream and chocolate with just a hint of raspberry. The berry flavor can easily be found when you take your first sip, but it doesn’t overpower the chocolate base of the drink. This is a great coffee if you want something a little sweet before class, but nothing that will make you feel too sugar high. When drinking it, the Love Mocha reminded me of biting into a fruit-filled candy that you’d find in a box of chocolates. You can order this drink iced or hot, and it gives your typical mocha latte an extra bit of flavor.
As for Cupid’s Smoothie, this delicious drink tastes like chocolate covered strawberries in liquid form. It’s a strawberry smoothie drizzled with chocolate sauce and you will not be able to put it down once you take a sip. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, you have to try this one out.
Lastly, we have the I Love You, A Latte! The name of the drink alone gives you enough justification to buy it, but this new drink was on the simpler side. It’s a regular latte that can be served hot or iced and has a lovely raspberry whipped cream on the top. The whipped cream was really yummy and is a nice way to spice up your regular latte. It’s a great drink if you don’t want to stray too far from that strong coffee taste.
The drinks almost have different levels of eccentricity and sweetness, with the I Love You, A Latte being the least sugary and Cupid’s Smoothie being the most. No matter what your preference is, at least one of these new tasty treats will suit you!
