The Tastiest Way to Enjoy Gingerbread

Friday, December 11, 2015 | 2:18 am

Gingerbread is pretty much synonymous with the season. But, even if you love the flavor, even the most die-hard dessert fan will admit gingerbread cookies can get old.

Instead sip your way into gingered bliss with this fresh, feisty take on gingerbread. Home Brewed Bar is about to make your holiday dreams come true. Their Gingerbread Cinnamon Fig Milk Tea will replace your peppermint latte faster than you can say “boba please.”

Perhaps the best thing about this spicy-sweet drink are the customization options. Home brewed Bar offers Coconut, Almond, Hemp and Soy Milk in addition to dairy options.

Since they opened two years ago, Home Brewed Bar has made a name for itself with 20-hour cold brewed tea and coffee. This process helps reduce acidity and bitterness while still making a flavorful brew. The artisan cold brewed tea is essential to their milk teas and adds a depth of flavor that many other boba places lack.

“A lot of people know us for cold brew but they don’t know that we can make any milk tea or drink hot,” said Brian Molina, manager of Home Brewed Bar. This option is especially helpful on those chilly California nights.

Molina recommends ordering the comforting Cinnamon Fig Milk Tea and dessert-worthy Lychee Taro Milk Tea with Red Bean hot instead of iced or ice blended. These enticing flavor combinations come from a cross-pollination between tea and coffee flavors as well as Molina’s experience bartending.

Home Brewed Bar is a one-stop beverage shop. “You have coffee in the morning and milk tea in the afternoon, it’s what’s missing between a coffee shop and a tea house,” said Molina.
