I have only recently become someone who likes to have the occasional alcoholic beverage. Throughout my preteen and young adult years it was common to hear phrases such as ‘goody two shoes’ hurled at me by friends and enemies alike; however, I’ll save delving deeper into those stories for a much sadder day. The only thing you need to know now is that although the thought of not being in complete control of everything my evening activities absolutely terrifies me, I do enjoy a drink. Usually I opt for a nice cold beer or Crispin hard cider, but this sassy number has my name all over it. It’s the perfect potion: frozen, slushy coffee, hazelnut liqueur, and whipped cream infused with maple syrup, all in one tall, beautiful glass. Cheers to you, to me, to things that only make us stronger, and all of life’s funny little hang ups.
