Memories of a Cafe Oasis
Hot chocolate memories, so many. Recently saw someone making an iced hot chocolate, wait can one call it that? I heated up a batch, chilled and added ice. Not quite the same holding a warm cup on a chilly day, but it did bring comfort under the heat dome! Your collage, lovely!
This is beautiful, Stella. I love the image of you taking smaller and smaller sips, so as to prolong the bliss of that moment. I feel like that’s what we try to do when we’re practicing mindfulness--and in doing so, it’s like we can stretch time, can’t we?
I love so many beverages. It’s hard to choose. I love hot chocolate, but I’ve never had really fine “sipping” chocolate, which I would love to try someday. I love coffee in any form. A little too much sometimes. I guess my favorite treat is matcha green tea mixed with any kind of plant-based milk. 🌿💚
That sounds like a delicious memory. So sad it was lost to the pandemic. Hopefully something magical eventually emerges in its space.
My favorite drink is an espresso martini, which must be trending again because I suddenly see it on many menus when for years it was hard to find one. Noosh makes a great one. So does Tailor's Son. And Original Joe's. Not that I have them super often but I do like exploring the city to try new ones.
Hot chocolate is my favorite beverage too! I prefer non-dairy milk like almond, oat, or soy. I love the digital collage!
Thanks for the restack, @Jason McBride
I drink a cup of homemade chai most mornings. In college, some girlfriends and I had a favorite Indian restaurant that served (among other delicious things) bottomless chai, hot or iced. I love it both ways and make it spicy, packed full of cloves and pepper and cardamom and ginger.
I don’t really have a favorite beverage. I’m just peeking in to say the digital collage is top notch. I love it!
Such a lovely post, Stella!
My favourite beverage? Tea. #becauseBritish 😉
Proper builders' tea, to boot - strong, dark, blisteringly hot, NOT left to brew, but mashed with a spoon until it's black as night, and served in the largest mug possible with barely a dash of milk. It's soooo ugly that it looks undrinkable, but it's absolutely hands-down GLORIOUS to drink.
