In a concerted effort to not be boring and get pumpkin spice lattes every day (like I have been), I changed it up again today with a triple grande ristretto peppermint white mocha… with skim milk and whipped cream.
God that’s a mouthful.
I can’t get a simple drink like, ever, can I? Oh well. I don’t care, because this is a delicious holiday drink. Ok, technically it’s not just a holiday drink. They have all the pieces all year round, but I only really crave it when there’s a Christmas-y chill in the air. Watch out though, because it’s a little sweeter than the peppermint mocha. And by a little, I mean a lot. So definitely either get an extra shot or take down the syrup pumps a notch. Or both. For example, you would say “triple grande skim peppermint white mocha, 2 pumps peppermint, 3 pumps white mocha, with ristretto shots.”
And then duck, because the barista writing your cup will try to punch you for making them take down such a complicated beverage.
