Not only will they add a hint of flavor and aroma to a drink, syrups, such as Monin Syrups, can also be used to sweeten your beverage. Best of all, Monin Syrups are available in organic and sugar-free options.
An essential ingredient in Vietnamese coffee, condensed milk acts as sweetener and creamer in one. Try it in an Americano or drip coffee but remember, a little bit goes a long way.
