Angelina's (No, Not Her Leg)
As I've stated before, I'm not a coffee person. I love the taste of it, but most of the time I cannot handle the caffeine. I've been trying to become a coffee drinker since I just got a brand new Keurig machine and caffeine is the lifeblood of graduate students. However, just yesterday I got a mocha latte from Starbucks, and it was so caffeinated that I wanted to stand on my porch and just scream for like 40 minutes.
My drinks of choice then are tea and hot chocolate. One of my favorite places in the world for hot chocolate is La Maison Angelina. Their African Hot Chocolate is almost sinful. The servers bring you a cup of thick melted chocolate and then a small pitcher of cream to stir into the chocolate. It's almost too much.
Next week, I'll head to New York for my birthday and I'll stop by Laduree for my favorite Parisian treat, but I'll still be dreaming of my favorite Parisian hot chocolate that I wish I could get stateside.
