12 Days of Cookies and Cocktails
Sometimes I forget my age. Coffee is still a very adult drink. One served to the grown ups at the end of a meal or before work. And now that I when I need to prove just how grown up I am to myself, I occasionally order a coffee. (Which no lie, has turned into a rapid love affair with caffeine). I found, that like most things with being an adult, I didn’t like it right away but learned I had to have it just my way to really enjoy it.
This… this is the way to have it… The Dark Moon Cocktail. A sweet blend of real sugar cola, dark iced coffee and liquor… The perfect after dinner cocktail to keep you up but settle you down for several more hours to come.
I can say that Cambodia has been a coffee fueled experience from top to bottom and I am probably going to go through withdraw back home while I adjust to my normal diet.
