I love fancy Starbucks drinks, but because I’m
cheap frugal I can’t bring myself to spend $5 on a drink. Besides that, I can’t fit into my “baggy” jeans anymore and the fancy drinks seem way too indulgent. So, for the past couple months I’ve been ordering a grande bold coffee with a shot of something. Like this: I’d like a Grande Raspberry Bold Coffee please! And then I put whole milk in it (about an inch worth) and it’s a great replacement for the real thing! This morning I got a Grande Cinnamon Dolce Bold Coffee! Oh my! It’s yummy! Shane said it’s not as hearty as a real latte, but whatever dude! It’s like a third of the price and somehow better than I can do at home even though it’s just coffee, syrup and milk.
I order the Bold coffee because I think it helps the drink to better resemble a real latte. Otherwise, they’ll give you the Pikes Place roast. I also use my registered Starbucks card because when you use it to buy a drink, you get free syrup.
