iced venti cafe con leche
My Starbucks‘ summer drink of choice has been the iced venti with room Americano, and I’d usually add a swig of Half & Half + 1 packet of Sugar in the Raw. I can’t believe the many hot drinks that are still being served into the summer, but to each their own. But, just last week, discovered a new drink on the handwritten blackboard by the barista’s espresso machine: iced cafe con leche (pronounced: lay-chay). Delicious! More milky and sweeter than my usual, plus a hint of cinnamon. Reminds me of the cinnamon dolce latte, but icy cold. Gothamist and Gawker noted the new drink during a 2-hour New York City promo 10 days ago.
[update : whew, my iced venti with room Americano doesn’t count as a controversial ghetto latte]
I was tagged by Goodmanson to talk about my favorite books. I’ve read more than my share of books, easily past the 2 books a year that the average American reads, but I haven’t been reading books lately, so I’m going to pass on jumping in with this meme. At least I was tagged in good company, with the likes of Mark Driscoll. 🙂
