What’s in Dutch Bros Christmas Morning?
The Dutch Bros’ Christmas Morning is a chai breve with white chocolate syrup added.
A breve is a drink made with half-and-half, so the original contains this type of milk. Substitute your milk of choice to create the perfect drink to celebrate the holiday season!
And you can enjoy it as either a cold or hot drink. So, even on those hot summer days, you can enjoy a bit of holiday magic!
What does Christmas Morning taste like?
Do you know that feeling you get when the weather turns chilly, and the smell of pine fills the air?
When Christmas lights around your neighborhood flip on for the first time of the season?
Or when the holiday coffee drinks at your favorite coffee chain finally become available again?
That’s precisely what Christmas Morning tastes like!
It’s sweet, creamy, and delightfully comforting. This drink is easily in the running for the best Dutch Bros drink!
What is a chai latte?
Chai is a type of spiced tea that originated in India. It is made with black tea and often combined with milk or sweeteners.
But what sets chai apart from your standard cup of tea is the spices.
There are many different variations, but spices such as cardamom, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and even black pepper give the drink its signature comforting flavor.
And by adding steamed milk with a touch of foam, the warm and fuzzy feelings inspired by this drink are tripled.
It’s almost like drinking the feeling you get when wearing your favorite cozy sweater.
Although most coffee shops offer chai lattes on their menu, you can create your own at home. You can also buy chai instant powder mix or liquid chai with black tea and spices.
All you have to do is add the milk of your choice and enjoy!
Does Dutch Bros have other chai tea drinks?
The iconic coffee shop does serve different varieties of chai.
One of the more decadent versions is the Golden Eagle Breve. This drink also contains chai with half-and-half. But it’s infused with a double whammy of flavor in the form of vanilla and caramel syrups. And the whole thing is obviously topped off with whipped cream and caramel drizzle.
The white chocolate chai is another classic on the Dutch Bros menu. Whether it’s prepared hot or cold, this drink is guaranteed to delight your taste buds! Complete the drink by adding milk of your choice.
For an extra treat, make sure to order the soft top. It’s a delightfully decadent version of whipped cream that has slightly more substance and flavor.
And try a vanilla chai to round out your Dutch Bros chai drinks experience.
