Coffee Flavored Syrup

What are you up against?

Monday mornings always bring on the blues.  My work situation can be a drag.  People walk past you in the halls and in the break room like strangers in a New York City street.  But I can handle that.

I was meeting with my client when she pulled out a bag of French Macarons.  Beautiful, mocha macarons.  The bag brazenly displayed the name of where they were purchased.  “Have one”, she said.

I hesitantly replied,” No Thank You!.”

“Do you know here these are from?”  She states. ” Um, yes, the bag says they are from Bouchon Bakery.” I replied.  “You sure you don’t want one”.  “Yes, I do want one, but I just can’t.” I said.  I walk back to my desk and stare at my yogurt and I know, hey, I can deal with that.

The problem was I couldn’t get the image of the beautiful mocha macaron off my brain.  The luscious, smooth, yet crisp oh-so-deliciousness that I am passing up.  But hey, I can deal with that.

With mocha macarons and coffee on my brain, I settled for making my own coffee flavored syrup.

  2. Add a tbsp of cocoa and 1/2 cup of cappuccino drink mix to this recipe for a darker richer and thicker syrup.pirfect for ice cream.(the Cocoa is so little it doesn’t take away from the coffee flavor.just darkens and thickens)
