(Liquid) Lunch : : Spiked Coffee
You should know by now that I'm a coffee fiend. And if you didn't know, now you do! I love trying out new coffee shops, or sticking to my staples at Starbucks, or mixing together my own concoctions at home. This recipe came into being today -- in fact, about five minutes ago -- as I was deciding what to do with leftover coffee that had gone cold. Thanks to this blogger, who recently guest posted here, I knew exactly what to do.
First, let me announce that I don't recommend alcoholic beverages to anyone under the legal age. I also recommend you don't drink and drive, and -- even though this is a coffee drink -- I don't recommend you consume this before work. (I'll let you know if you should sip it while blogging once I'm done with this post.)
Secondly, this recipe was an experiment... and I made some mistakes along the way. (Hey, no one's perfect, even me. Hard to believe, right? Kidding!) For example, if you don't throw the ingredients in a blender, the milk will curdle. It'll still taste good, but look bad. (We all know looks aren't everything, but still.)
I'm sure you're bored (and thirsty) at this point, so let's get started!
Milk (I used almond)
Whipped Vodka ($10 at your local Ralph's)
Fresh, lukewarm coffee (Mine is from The Coffee Bean)
Four easy steps to an adult frappuccino! Did you try it? What do you think?
