Fab Food Friday for this week was my first red cup of the season!
I have an unnatural love of the Red Cups, I think their prettyness makes the drink taste better… yes, I’m a dork and have no problem with it.
My go-to Starbucks drink used to be Caramel Machiatto’s, switching it up to Peppermint Mochas in the winter when the Red Cups came out.
Lately Macchiato’s and Mochas seem too sweet/heavy, maybe it’s because I don’t get Starbucks very often anymore? I was planning to try a Peppermint Latte instead and then I saw it.
Crème Brûlée Latte.
My heart beat a little faster, my palms got sweaty, I knew I had to have it.
Okay, that didn’t really happen but I was sold on the drink – I knew it would be amazing.
The barrista making my drink was awesome! He chatted me up and told me how fabulous the drink is. He also told me he’s been doing shots of the syrup since they recieved it, haha. Then he handed it to me, in a pretty red cup and it was AMAZING, definately a great start to my day!
Get your CB latte’s while you can!
Anyone else get excited about the Red Cups or have a go-to drink?
