Caffeinated Randomness - I Feel Like I'm Cheating

Photobucket





I've discovered a new love.  Something that is slowly becoming the thing that I crave, dream of and can't live without it.  It could become my new best friend.  Sorry Evil Twin.  What is it?  Its a Copy Cat Caramel Apple Spice drink.  


Doesn't it look delicious.  Can you believe it actually has no caffeine?  It makes me want to grab a blanket and cuddle up watching Grey's Anatomy (which is now on probation because they killed off my favourite character) or read a good book. 

I found the recipe on Pinterest while browsing through the Food & Drink boards.  I have found some great recipes there.  I saw the picture and then checked out the website.  The only thing you really have to cook is the cinnamon syrup.  It was super easy to make and I keep it in a mason jar in the cupboard.  I think next time instead of cinnamon, I'll use pumpkin pie spice and see what it tastes like.  I have also used real whipped cream and cool whip.  Of course real whip is the way to go and that's from someone who loves cool whip (I've been known to eat it frozen like ice cream).  

So how does this feel like cheating?  It is on the verge of becoming the "go to" drink.  I could drink it more than coffee.  GASP!!!! Did I just say this?  No, I don't think that could happen.  I require the caffeine to perk me up in the mornings.  This could be my evening drink, or could it become something else........?

Have you tried anything new lately?  What have you found on Pinterest that you can't live without (and Pinterest itself does not count)?

Come link up this week and share your favourite randomness with us.

I have a love/hate relationship with coffee. I rarely enjoy drinking it, but the caffeine is a necessity for me. I get frequent migraines, and I find that if I follow a strict schedule of caffeine in the morning and afternoon it helps to keep the migraines away. That drink does look yummy, though!

Okay, for a minute I thought you were giving up coffee, and I was going to hop in my minivan and drive the however many hours it is to your house to smack you. :P Don't scare a girl like that!
