… was a Peanut Butter Koopa Troopa from The Wormhole coffee shop in Chicago! Peanut mousse, local chocolate, espresso, almond milk. STOP. IT. For those of you who like peanut butter and chocolate… and coffee, this is the best thing ever. I took this photo while D and I were working on our laptops there last summer. I have yet to find a latte like this one since… it’s like, the unicorn of drinks. (Apparently PB is really hard to work with. I did find this Peanut Butter Torani syrup though, which is super delicious in a pinch!).
Do you have a favorite drink that reminds you of a special time somewhere? I think of Piña Coladas on the beach with cigars and Dugan at my sister’s wedding in Rivera Maya, Sharon’s famous Egg Nog at her Christmas party, homemade hurricanes with our best friends on Fat Tuesday, sun tea every summer growing up. I love it all… every sweet, satisfying memory. I’m feeling a little homesick for our old neighbor Chicago today… for our friends there, for the skyscrapers and shopping and diversity. But mostly, in all honesty, for that peanut butter latte. xo
