Mixer & Mingle Friday : Weekend coffee

I think I've professed many time on the ol' blog the complexity of my Starbucks order. I don't go there often, but oh when I do... it's go big or go home time in Chelsea's world....

Ready?

Triple grande white mocha, sub half white chocolate for raspberry. 
That's a grande white chocolate mocha, with an extra shot of espresso, 2 of the normal 4 pumps of white chocolate and 2 pumps of raspberry added.

It. is. heavenly. It's like $6 so it better be heavenly. Tastes very similar to my favorite ice cream - Godiva's White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle.

Now, if I can stop drooling I'll explain why I even brought this up (I know ya'll are like HELLO IT'S FRIDAY... GIMME THE BOOZE!)

You see, I've discovered how to make my own lil version of my coffee concoction on the weekends. And only the weekends. Because it's spiked. And that, my friends, is apparently frowned upon during weekdays.

Allow me to introduce to you my new best friend and partner in crime:


Chambord, black raspberry liqueur.

Make your coffee, add your french vanilla creamer and sugar, a few splashes of this little lady and you're ready to rockNroll! (I suppose you could use other flavors of creamer... I don't know? Let's not get TOO crazy here)

First - as a former Starbucks barista... I loved high maintenance orders like this. Knowing that I nailed the perfect drink and the drinker will know that I got it right was my favorite. Man... can't believe I just admitted that. haha!

As for Chambord... LOVE IT! At a bar in my college town, there was this margarita with Chambord in it. SO YUMMY!!!

YUM! One of our local coffee shops calls that a Lite White Berry....lite only bcs they make it with skim, but I get it with soy. SOOOO good. And you definitely have to do half the syrup!

Umm... I get the white mocha all the time and I NEVER thought to put raspberry in it. I am pretty sure you have changed my Starbucks experience for life.
