Chocolate Raspberry Mocha (sent by my friend and fellow author, Jean Fischer)

2 Tbsp. Torani Chocolate syrup
1 Tbsp. Torani Raspberry syrup

Then, whisk until frothy. Pour all but one tablespoon of the heated flavored
milk into a mug and add brewed coffee. Spoon the rest of the foamed milk over top of the beverage.
