It’s Wednesday! It’s Wednesday. The weekend is so close, yet feels so far away. For days like this, I need coffee- probably about three cups of coffee.
Over the years, coffee has become very popular and quite trendy. From blended coffee drinks to coffee crusted steak (yes, I’m not kidding, its real!), a regular cup of coffee isn’t going to cut it these days. I’m still a purist when it comes to my afternoon pick-me-up– I like it iced, black, with a little bit of sugar. Of course, if you take me to Starbucks or one of those hip coffee shops in LA, I’ll order some fancy drink.
Here are some exciting and delicious looking coffee beverages to liven your day.
Earlier this spring, Rachel brought this lovely coffee margarita cocktail on The Steve Harvey Show. Using a shot of espresso flavored tequila and little bit of coffee, you have a great beverage to serve any time of the year.
There is this super popular bakery/cafe near my hometown that serves addicting sea salt coffee. It’s popping up in cool coffee shops along the coast. Here’s a recipe for you to try at home by The Little Epicurean. Also, quick tip- if you happen to brew your coffee too bitter, a little sprinkle of salt can help offset the bitterness.
Once upon a time, I detested coffee. And then I met a dirty chai and I fell in love with espresso. A dirty chai latte combines sweet chai with a shot or two of espresso. The results are lovely, delicious, and caffeinated. Try this dirty chai latte by Emily of Five and Spice.
