Now I am by no means a coffee aficionado. I need a fast caffeine fix without a lot of effort or time. So I modified Mrs. D's recipe a bit and the end result was this quick and dirty iced latte:
What? Why yes that IS instant espresso. And no, it doesn't taste like mud. Maybe it does on it's own, but it surely doesn't when mixed with a healthy dose of Caramel Macchiato creamer and skim milk. Want to make one for yourself? (You should ;)
First, make yourself a triple shot of espresso.
Pour it into a shake-able container.
Then, dump in the creamer of your choice. Go ahead, put a little more in.
Add enough milk to bring the total volume to 16 oz.
Wipe up the milk that the baby on your hip spilled while you were pouring.
Add your desired amount of ice.
Shake it up. Sing "shake it up baby now" to the baby on your hip as you do.
Pour it into the free travel cup your dad gave you and be on your merry, caffeinated way!
And just for good measure, here's a pic from my first Mother's Day with Sweets on Sunday. In case you can't see it, his shirt says "I Love My Mommy." I love you too, my Baby Boy.
