Cappuccino Cooler

Last few days have been very cold. We again need a jacket especially in the mornings. Weather has been playing tricks on us. We’ve got great winter, spring and now, we got hit by cold wave. Still, all kinds of cold drinks are out to cool us even further. I had an Iced Coffee from McDonald’s and I started complaining of feeling cold. I was debating whether to get a pipin’ hot coffee to warm me up or iced coffee to cool me down and hubby dear won as he wanted to go for iced coffee.

A side note: we both work for the same company. We are practically together for well, 24 hours a day! People wonder how we can still stand each other after having been blessed with THIS MUCH togetherness! We go for coffee together, lunch we don’t eat together. Sometimes we go for a walk if the weather is nice and that’s about it.

So back to my iced coffee story. I’ve made iced coffee before. This time, I wanted to try my hands on iced cappuccino. And yes, I got the same mouthwatering cooler at home we normally pay big bucks at the coffee shops. And that is again, so easy to whip up, I can’t believe I spent so much of my hard earned money on those fancy coffee drinks. I might still go to McD just to get away from my desk but it won’t be that frequent.
