Hi everyone. If you have been following along on my Blogmas journey, you most likely know of my peppermint obsession. If you haven’t been following, I love peppermint. That being said, it’s only natural that my favorite winter drink contains peppermint: peppermint and chocolate to be exact (one of my absolute favorite combinations). To me, peppermint somehow tastes best during the winter season. I don’t know if it’s the cold weather or what, but something brings out the beautiful taste of peppermint and in the winter, I can’t get enough of it.
Being the white girl that I am, I love starbucks. Like honestly it’s not even close to the best coffee around, however, I do have a Starbucks reward card and the incentives are good enough to stay. I blogged a lot about visiting coffee shops in San Diego, however, around my house there aren’t that many, so Starbucks it is.
My favorite winter drink happens to be the Peppermint Mocha (with soy milk of course). Sometimes I will get it in frappuccino form, weather permitting. I actually have a system for which version of the drink I order. If it is above 10° (Fahrenheit) I order the frappuccino version, if it is below the 10° mark, I order the original hot version. And unfortunately, I end up getting the hot version more often that not. Curse you Chicago weather.
