What’s in your cup?

A companion thread to What's on your plate? 

 

I thought it would fun to share what we’re all drinking. It could be your favourite tea or show of your crowd pleasing cocktail recipes. What’s in your cup?

Right now, I’m enjoying a nice cup of ginger peach tea with milk and honey. It’s nice and calming before bed.

And shout out to the original thread  I kinda found out too late about this and it’s been far too long since it was updated. 

 

Re: What’s in your cup?

A snapshot of what I've been drinking on most mornings this month.

Green juice, cinnamon cold brew, and Emergen-C

Re: What’s in your cup?

The cinnamon cold brew sounds great @itsfi! I hope the emergen-c is preventative and not because you’re feeling under the weather. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

@JoSometimes, the cinnamon cold brew was excellent; wish I would have thought of that earlier. But it's something I can have year round and I plan on having it again another day or two or three ... The Emergen-C is preventative. I started taking it semi-regularly when I was doing a fair share of travel this fall / winter, and the routine just sorta stuck with me this month.

Gingerbread oatmilk chai with a shot of espresso

drink - PrettyPaint 2023 Special.jpg

 

I may have found my winter specialty coffee drink, all thanks to the brilliant mind of our fabulous @PrettyPaint. She referred to this as a "dirty gingerbread oatmilk chai" in a conversation we had a couple posts below ~ it's a Starbucks gingerbread oatmilk chai with a shot of espresso (at least, one shot was perfect for a tall sized Starbucks drink. May need two shots for a grande. 😉). PrettyPaint, this hit the spot earlier today. It was delicious. The shot of espresso toned down the sweetness juuuuust so, which made the drink perfect for me. Thank you, thank you! I highly recommend this. Dirty gingerbread oatmilk chai. Gingerbread oatmilk chai with a shot of espresso. Call it whatever you want. As far as I am concerned, this is now the PrettyPaint 2023 Special. Soooo good. 💖 

 

Re: What’s in your cup?

@itsfi I'm so happy that this drink makes you so happy. ❤️ It's definitely a nice and cozy combination.

Re: What’s in your cup?

@PrettyPaint, I love it. I kept seeing it being unavailable at the Starbucks near me so I just decided to try making it myself. I've been using Stash Double Spice Chai tea bags and using 2 bags and steeping them a longer than usual.

Re: What’s in your cup?

Oh my, I'm gonna have to go to Starbucks @itsfi @PrettyPaint But, not remotely close to evenings if I wanna sleep😁

Re: What’s in your cup?

@Buootiful Is it 2pm or 3pm that they recommend to stop drinking caffeine? I can't remember. I think I must drink too much coffee because I had some at 8pm yesterday and it definitely didn't keep me up!!

Re: What’s in your cup?

Oh, I'm an avid coffee drinker but with Chai, idk. In the SNF, I had some Disney black tea my friends gave me. I drank it at 7pm as a snack and didn't sleep a wink all night. And I had meds that make you drowsy.  I binge watched 1/2 a kdrama in one night🤣 @PrettyPaint 

Re: What’s in your cup?

@Buootiful Oh wow, that's interesting. I don't know the caffeine content of chai, but I always assumed it was less than coffee. Maybe I need to start drinking more chai. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

That's something I can appreciate @Buootiful! A good night's sleep is definitely worth aiming for. I will say that there have been occasions where having a cup of coffee with dessert at dinner has actually helped me sleep better. 😅 

Re: What’s in your cup?

Your right, coffee doesn't affect my sleep but with the tea mixed it will😂 @itsfi 

Re: What’s in your cup?

@itsfi @PrettyPaint I love a dirty chai.... I'll have to try with gingerbread!

Re: What’s in your cup?

@missjeanie Oooh, I bet you would like it! 🙂

Re: What’s in your cup?

It was so good @missjeanie! I love my coffee just plain as some coffee drinks are too sweet for me but this was my non-alcoholic coffee drink of 2023. @PrettyPaint It will be repeated next year. I may have to start making it at home myself to hold me over until next fall / winter. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

@itsfi That's a great idea to make from home. I'm not sure how to replicate the chai. I imagine chai tea wouldn't be strong enough unless there is a concentrate you can purchase.

Re: What’s in your cup?

@PrettyPaint The TAZO Chai concentrate is 100% available in grocery stores!!  

Re: What’s in your cup?

@missjeanie @PrettyPaint, I meant to post this when I was in the store but I got distracted (but I didn't buy anything I wasn't supposed to, ha!)

 

Cue the Mission: Impossible theme song ... 🎵🎶

I ended up using my Target Circle rewards so it was pretty much free. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

@itsfi  this is honestly giving me so much nostalgia and it’s delicious Great choice!

Re: What’s in your cup?

@itsfi Definitely free! Did you try it yet???

Re: What’s in your cup?

@itsfi At 5 bucks the return on your investment is staggering.  You're practically making money.  This is actually the fiscally responsible investment in your self. I hope the tazo home version is just as yummy as the Starbux!
