My youngest, Dub, was sick for the first time this week. It was so miserable seeing my little guy uncomfortable and coughing. Neither of us got much sleep over the last seven nights and I’m afraid I didn’t get much writing in, either. So for today’s post, I humbly offer you my personal recipe for the mother of all coffee drinks: The Mamacino. It is as inventive as it is cold.
8 oz of coffee (cold, slightly stale)
5 tbs creamer “alternative”
2 scoops of sugar
The ingredients may look rather ordinary, but the trick to this drink is all in the making! First, brew a hot cup of coffee and immediately cue a crying child. Forget about the coffee for no less than two hours. Once your coffee is adequately cold and slightly stale, pour into a mug. Sacrifice the last bit of regular milk to your tiny humans and search for some kind of “creamer” alternative. Popular substitutes are canned whipped cream, chocolate milk, and (for the slightly crazy or very desperate) breast milk. Heap in two scoops of sugar (because caffeine is not enough) and VOILA! The Mamacino!
Sit back, relax, and enjoy, my friend.
And by enjoy I mean chug, because your infant is starting to wake-up. 🙂
