I know. Tough life.
Yesterday I walked in and a miracle happened:
I saw the Starbucks Refresher. A green coffee based drink in Lime or Hibiscus. Who knew green coffee could even be eaten? Not this girl.
After bantering with the barista, she gave me samples of both to try. I love both but ordered the Lime flavored one.
They are both pretty low cal (I think my 16 oz. Grande was like 60 or 70 calories) and tasted exactly like a Mojito. Good stuff.
They've got a little caffeine but not enough to give me da twitchy eye. I think the caff content is a little closer to Diet Coke or Iced Tea.
Of course, like any Starbucks drink, they are a bit of a ripoff ($2.50-$3.50), but I'm worth it...right? ;).
Here's the pic of my heaven. Like always, my name is spelled wrong, but I guess that's my fault for having a silent "T". Someone's pretentious! (moi).
That brings me to the next awesome thing I wanted to share.
Ever had someone misspell your name ridiculously? Like...so far from it's normal spelling, it's laughable?
So did these Starbucks Baristas.
The website concept is simple: Post your name along with your misspelled Starbucks cups.
The results? Amazing.
Here are a few of my favorites.
Orderer's Name: Winnie
Nate wasn't expecting this compliment:
And in the spirit of the last Harry Potter movie coming out...
Orderer's Name: Voldemort
He-who-shall-not-be-named indeed.... =)
Have ya tried these Refresher drinks?
Do people always get your name wrong? Do tell....
