Toffeenut Latte @ Starbucks
I love the Christmas season because the air is filled with festive cheer and the beautiful decorations in the shopping malls are a sight to behold. What I also love about Christmas is the Toffeenut Latte that is served at Starbucks! I've been a fan of this drink for years and will make it a point to have a regular dose (weight permitting) during this season.
What do I love about this drink? I'm usually not a huge fan of sweet stuff but I make exceptions for certain desserts and flavoured coffee drinks. This is one of them. I love how the buttery taste of toffee blends with the nutty fragrance of macadamia nuts and coffee to create a luxuriously smooth coffee drink. I usually have it without the whipped cream but decided to indulge myself on Saturday and have it with the whipped cream and Toffee Nut Sprinkles. I like to add some nutmeg powder and cinnamon powder to my drink to give it a spicier taste.
I used to love the Egg Nog Latte but Starbucks stopped serving it in Singapore after Christmas 2000, apparently it was not very popular here but is still served in the US for Christmas as a classic drink. I hope they'll consider bringing it back in 2007 and hope the response will be better next year. By the way, for all Starbucks fans out there, don't you also love the Christmas-themed takeaway cups that they have every year?
