I really shouldn't consume as many sugary, caffeinated beverages as I do, but it's really hard when there's a drive-thru Starbucks so close to me, and it's also hard since I spend so much time Lunching in cafes. Oh, and they're so tasty! Here's my lists of favorite beverages to order at cafes.
The caramel macchiatos that are served at Starbucks are a misnomer because they're actually caramel lattes, but that's alright, I'll still drink it! I try not to consume too much sugar on a daily basis, but on days when I feel like I've been good eating-wise, I let myself have one of these :)
I order mochas when I'm feeling like something chocolatey. Same rules apply as the caramel macchiato though; I only have these when I don't plan on consuming too much sugar that day because these things can are usually really sweet!
Fraps, Fredos, blended drinks, whatever, I love 'em. Sometimes I'll even order these on a cold day. Oh man, the ones with the perfect consistency are so bad for you since you've gotta use real sugar and whole milk to make 'em!
These are the perfect drink when I'm working late night, or just want a late night warm beverage, at a cafe as their lack of caffeine wouldn't keep me up too late. So tasty. I prefer these Mexican style with cinnamon!
I have these when I don't have time to enjoy a handcrafted beverage, just want a quick boost of energy, or know that I wouldn't have time to use the bathroom (hey, I have a small bladder!). Sometimes I'll add a bit of sugar, but I usually just gulp it straight. Quick shot and I'm done!
I guess I'm a bit of a cafe snob, or just high maintenance and usually go for handcrafted beverages, but when I'm in a hurry, or I'm at a place where only straight up coffee is served, I'll settle. I always switch it up with coffee. Sometimes I'll have it black, other times I'll add syrup, sugar, or condensed milk, sometimes cream.
