Best Pick-Me-Up You Didn't Know You Needed
Meaghan Habuda

One sip of what’s called the Bouquet Latte and you'll wonder where this collaboration between St. Petersburg’s Bandit Coffee Co. and The Urban Canning Company has been all your life. You didn't know you needed this straight-up-delicious wonder on ice, but, yeah, you definitely did. A much-loved spring menu item, the seasonal latte features your standard espresso and milk, plus honey, lavender, rose, corn flower, heather, chamomile, jasmine, cedar, lemon and lime. It’s on the sweet side, but also one-of-a-kind. —Meaghan Habuda
