Fleur de Sel et Caramel

Back when I was slinging coffee for a living I was in charge of creating a menu for a michelin star restaurant. One of the drinks I created was called "Fleur de Sel et Caramel", a caramel latte with a Fleur de Sel sea salt, caramel, and gold sugar rim. My lettering project is based on the name of this coffee beverage that I created.

Some of the themes that came to mind:

summer, sea salt, ocean, spray, candy, taffy, sugar, caramel, sweets, beach, ribbon, vintage candy shop, waves, fleur de lis, candy wrappers
