Spring has officially sprung thanks to this stimulating mix of lavender, mocha, and espresso. Try it iced with a rosemary shortbread cookie sprinkled with sea salt. Could anything be fresher? This is exactly what a forest nymph would eat for breakfast … if forest nymphs actually needed caffeine.
• Linnaea's Miss Lavender Brown—About $3.90 for a small; 1110 Garden Street, SLO.
We all like to be bad every now and then. Leather, spice, and everything nice comes together in this tobacco-laced beauty. It’s like breaking the law without the consequences.
• 2009 Arroyo Robles Zinfandel—$25 a bottle; 1317 Park Street, Paso Robles.
