Adventuring into 2014, and it’s been 4 days..and I’ve already completed one of my unwritten goals. It’s not something that I’ve wanted to try for a long time, but my mom thought it would be a good idea to explore outside my usual grande green tea lemonade 2 syrup order at Starbucks and try something else for a change (also because it’s cold outside).
I rarely get drinks to go in the winter, mainly because I think the cups are such a waste..although there’s recycling and stuff..but I had a ‘buy one a drink free’ from Chapters that can be used at participating Starbucks…why not!
It was fancy, with the whipped cream and sprinkles that the barista topped the drinks off, but by the time my camera got to the drinks. : ( OH WELL. My first attempt to try something coffee related really surprised me, as I drank my mocha. I tend to avoid coffee drinks as it has milk and cream that I dislike, a lot. But my first sip was intriguing, as I quite like the taste…no milk or cream related taste on my buds. Then I sipped my moms hot chocolate, as the hot chocolate at Starbuck’s has to be made with milk, according to the barista. Nevertheless, I also enjoyed my mom’s choice of drink, with no milk/ cream tastes on my buds…another successful order. Now I have ventured into the Starbuck’s hot drinks menu, and no more just ordering grande green tea lemonade 2 syrup.
I’m proud of myself for reaching another step, but there’s this sour aftertaste that I can’t get rid of, maybe that’s why people request a cup of water, to rinse off that aftertaste.
