Sally Loo’s holiday special is The Winter Fir; a soy cappuccino with house made pine syrup and bourbon-infused sugar. The fir on the side of the saucer (aka a small piece of a pine tree’s branch) is the perfect holiday touch. The bourbon-infused sugar gives the capp a drinkable and enjoyable sweetness, even for someone who usually prefers bitter or savory to sweet flavors. This was the first holiday drink I’ve tried at Sally Loo’s, and it held up to the high expectations I’ve had about it ever since I saw the @sallyloos Instagram post announcing it a week ago.
Interesting, haven’t seen natural greens alongside a cup before. Subtle and charming. Perhaps in other seasons you could get away with a rosemary substitute for the same effect, while not being “Christmassy.”
