My New Halloween-Themed Drink

18 Oct

October 18, 2016

 

I was in Dunkin’ Donuts the other day with Saarah and she was ordering tea. I’m not a big fan of hot drinks. Coffee? No thanks. Tea? Pass. I prefer to get my caffeine the old-fashioned way: Diet Pepsi, just like Grandma and Grandpa did.

dunkin-donuts-710x400Saarah is pretty specific about her tea. I can’t give away exactly how she likes it because it is her intellectual property and don’t you dare try to duplicate it, but I can tell you that the main ingredient is (got a pencil handy? You may want to write this down) steamed skim milk.

So she tells the girl behind the counter how she wants it and for once the girl gets it right. Now, here is where my inspiration comes in. I’ve got a great idea for a Halloween-themed drink and it all comes from what the girl said to Saarah. Saarah asked if the milk was steamed and the girl answered “I steamed the head off it.” 

VIOLA!

And that is how I invented decappiccino. Get it? No head= decapitated cappuccino = decappichino. It’s brilliant! 

And not a hint of pumpkin spice.

But I’m not sure what the girl meant by “steamed the head off it.” Must be a coffee drinker thing.
