Caffiend: Jolta Java's Mexican Joltachino

Locally-owned Jolta Java's beverage menu reads like a wish list for sugar freaks: caramel espresso blends, fruity tropical teas, Italian sodas, smoothies, and whipped cream on pretty much anything you want. We decided to combine our quest for caffeine with a massive sugar rush by ordering Jolta Java's Mexican Joltachino (with a slice of the store's homemade coffee cake on the side).

Jolta Java: Mexican Joltachino
14418 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale

The Joltachino is basically espresso blended with ice, and topped with whipped cream. Patrons can choose from six flavors: Mocha, Mexican, Caramel, White Chocolate, Vanilla, and Green Tea. The Mexican blend has a spicy edge, combining nutmeg and cinnamon flavors for a taste similar to a Horchata, but a bit richer. Jolta Java blends their Joltachinos smooth, but it has the consistency of a milkshake. With an estimated 75 mg of caffeine in a 16 ounce Joltachino, the drink's caffeine content isn't as high as some other coffees, but the mountains of sugar and whipped cream give the brew a substantial boost, and could easily amp up the casual consumer.
