BlackHorse Espresso & Bakery's Caramello and Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards' 2014 Red Delicious

Sometimes you just need a break, and a foamy latte mixed with house-made caramel is the only thing that will do. BlackHorse Coffee puts the “mellow” in Caramello. So, light a scented candle, slide your hand down your pants a la Al Bundy, and chillax, caramel style.

BlackHorse Espresso & Bakery’s CaramelloAbout $3 for a small; 1065 Higuera St. No. 101, SLO.

Legend has it, Kelsey’s refreshing apple wines have earned the term “hot tub wines” because they are so commonly consumed in the bubbling hot springs of the area. That’s right—they don’t taste like “hot tub water!” On the contrary, this mix of vino and See Canyon apples is absolutely heavenly, whether you enjoy it in your own backyard Jacuzzi or share it with friends at the SLO Elks Lodge hot tub. Turn on the jets and pop a cork! 

Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards’ 2014 Red Delicious$22 a bottle; 1947 See Canyon Road, SLO.
