Buzzed

Ah, Hump Day. Is this week a long one, or is it just me? The weather in New York has been totally unpredictable, the light is starting to take on an autumn-esque quality, and I think I’m getting a cold. Fan-freaking-tastic.

As a little pick me up, I thought I’d share this tip I found while browsing the interwebz. Don’t you hate when you’re drinking iced coffee and you suck back the entire drink just slowly enough to leave an inch of coffee-flavored-water at the bottom?

Me too.

The answer? Coffee cubes! Freeze some coffee in ice cube trays and by the time your drink is gone, you’ll still have a nice little treat left. If you’re feeling especially saucy, drop a couple chocolate covered espresso beans in the ice cube trays before the cubes freeze and voila: snack time.

Note: this also works with wine (because there’s nothing classier than white wine with ice cubes floating in it, right?). Just leave out the espresso beans…

    Good tip. Where’s the pictured coffee drink from?

  2. It’s from El Diablo in Seattle!

    I THOUGHT that looked familiar. That’s El D himself smiling in the foam.
