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.

Spoiler
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?

@itsfi Ohhhh! I thought there was something more to it than that. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

@itsfi Ohh look at all of the variations! My SO says "excellent drink choice". The third one looks pretty. I like the glass and the garnish. The hotel bar made some great drinks for sure. The bartender eyeballed her pours. I am not used to that where I live.

Re: What’s in your cup?

Yeah, my drink of choice is usually whiskey neat or an Old Fashioned, or wine with dinner, @Mellmars1185. Interesing about eyeballing the pours - maybe the bartender at the hotel was new? I haven't really seen that when I've gone out here. Thank you so much for getting us drinks when we were chilling at the hotel bar the last night.

Re: What’s in your cup?

AMAZING!!!! @itsfi 

Re: What’s in your cup?

The last one, unpictured, was definitely amazing @sister13👍 Best of the ones I had in NYC, which was surprising, but I guess it's true - saved the best for last! 

Re: What’s in your cup?

Found a new coffee/tea place thanks to a girl in my Pilates teacher training class. Got a matcha latte yesterday and tropical green tea today.  They have funny stickers.

Re: What’s in your cup?

@SportyGirly125  I love the sticker! 😂 Yay for finding new drink places - I hope it was tasty!

Re: What’s in your cup?

@caitbird @It was really yummy. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

Great find @SportyGirly125! That sticker is pretty funny. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

@JoSometimes @You should see the one I got today. I can’t post it on here because of what it says but it’s pretty funny. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

Reporting back about my experiment with boba tea at home.  I have a pan with sticky, dark, flat boba soaking in the sink.

I had no idea they were so fragile before boiling!  I cooked them too long, so next time I'll test them as I go.  I didn't waste any of the drink mix by trying them with the mushy boba.

Re: What’s in your cup?

Aww that’s too bad @Ispend2much6. Hopefully, the next time around is better. If they’re like the boba I’m used to seeing, once they float, I reduce the heat and just let them simmer until they’re chewy. Then I drop them into cold water to stop the cooking. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

Excellent advice @JoSometimes - thanks!

Re: What’s in your cup?

Oh, no, @Ispend2much6 !  I would have thought the tapioca used in boba bubbles would be as sturdy as the tapioca used in pudding.  Guess not.

Re: What’s in your cup?

hat's what I thought too @Titian06 !

Basic things that bring joy, a hot PSL 🎃 

I don’t have too many of these because they’re so loaded with sugar (a grande has somewhere around 12 tsp!!) and my skin responds terribly to too much, but it’s such a lovely Fall treat 🧡

Re: What’s in your cup?

I feel you on that sugar issue @bakeamuffin! I used to do extra pumps in things when I was younger. Now I ask for half sweet everything. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

I know what you mean @bakeamuffin .  I just checked on the nutritional info of my usual, the Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso.  It has 12 g sugar (3 tsp,) for a grande.  But 10 g of additional carbs from the oatmilk.

 

I saw that Starbucks has "at home" recipes for some of their favorites online!  Sounds like something fun to try.

Re: What’s in your cup?

Oh I am going to try the brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso you mentioned @Ispend2much6, that sounds delightful! 

thank you for finding that recipe for me, that certainly is fun to try! Saving that! 

Re: What’s in your cup?

Fall is here! I haven't had pumpkin spice latte drink for some time but it has always signaled fall for me when I see in cafes and in people's hands. 🍃🍂🍁 Will have to pull out my pumpkin spice candles @bakeamuffin

Re: What’s in your cup?

Nothing sets the ambience better @itsfi , great idea!
