Don't Fall In
Fall is coming, or if you're from around here it has already landed. The leaves are doing their beautiful transition from green to gold. All around me here in Wisconsin is turning colors, even the trees on the side of the highway are displaying a myriad of colors and shades to pleasure passerbyers. Not only are the leaves changing but so is the weather. I find myself drinking more hot coffee as compared to the summer when I almost exclusively drink iced coffee. Following the changing of the leaves is the changing of the Starbucks menu. Those seasonal drinks come...well..come only once a season. So pull on your favorite sweater and slide your feet into some nice wooly socks and come learn how to make something warm to keep that chilliness at bay.
Let's look at how to make one of my favorites, a Maple Sweet Cream Iced Coffee. Even just saying that makes my mouth water, and hopefully, after you are done here you will understand why.
2 Tbsp2% milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 Tbsp maple syrup
