5 Flavored Iced Coffee Drinks You Won't Be Embarrassed to Order

Jobot's dirty chai is much more than meets the eye and much less sugary.
I know, that headline is a bit harsh, but seriously. If you can hold your head up high holding a dulce triple caramel frappucino with whip and chocolate sprinkles, you're stronger stock than I. However, I'll readily admit a love of flavor when it isn't just a bunch of syrup. Thankfully, there are several coffee shops around town that make flavorful drinks with legit ingredients. Here are five of my favorites.

Dirty Chai from Jobot Coffee
Usually chai lattes are either that thick, dark brown Monin syrup mixed with milk or Pacific's pre-mixed chai-milk blend. Not so at Jobot--the café brews chai tea concentrate and then combines a bit of honey and a splash (just a splash, really) of vanilla syrup. Add milk, ice, and espresso, and you have one serious dirty chai. The final touch is a dash of Jobot's special house blend of chai spices, including cinnamon and black pepper, which adds an intense, almost savory kick.

Honey Vanilla Latte from Giant Coffee
Building any latte on the base of Four Barrel espresso and creamy, delicious Strauss milk is definitely a solid place to start. However, when Giant's baristas add McClendon's Select local honey in the mix, it makes this drink a knockout. Just lightly sweet, it doesn't seem as naughty as other flavored lattes. Chances are, this one's already a favorite of yours, or will be soon if it isn't.

Espresso Excellente from Cartel Coffee Lab
If there was an official iced coffee drink of the Valley, Cartel's espresso excellente would surely be a front-runner. This drink is the only one that's vegan as a matter of course. The in-house made horchata can be a little gritty, but it is packed with cinnamon. Plus, without heavy cow's milk, it's a nice way to opt for a latte, without completely masking the espresso flavor.

can't we just all order cappucinos (before 11 a.m. of course) like the Europeans?
