Daily Prompt – Pick Your Potion

Captain Picard was into Earl Grey tea; mention the Dude and we think: White Russians. What’s your signature beverage — and how did it achieve that status?

I think that if you were to ask any of my friends what my signature drink is, and they would probably just say water. If you were to ask Crazy Cat Lady, she’d probably say a chai latte.

I’m such a nanna, in that I don’t drink alcohol, so I’ll never have some kind of fancy cocktail as a signature drink.

My signature drink would be a cup of tea.

No particular type of tea, just a regular tea bag, one sugar and a bit of milk…. with about ten biscuits to then dunk into it. I do loves me a giant cup of tea, especially on a lazy cold wintery morning – a giant cup of tea and half a dozen pieces of toast, smothered in butter. Absolute heaven. Recently, I’ve been drinking a lot of peppermint tea, or fennel tea. Although we also still have an entire shelf full of T2 (gourmet) teas which we’re loving.

Growing up, it would have been a milo, because I would go through Milo like there was no tomorrow, but then for some reason I kind of went off it for a bit.. perhaps it was when I started drinking tea.

In summer, my signature drink would easily be a frozen coke from McDonalds, or a Slurpee from 7-Eleven… oh and water. Or even better, a Coke Float – which is where you get a giant cup, and put a large spiral of soft-serve ice cream right in the centre, and then you pour frozen coke (or equivalent) all around the sides. Here in Australia, only a couple of McDonald’s places will still make them, as they were only available for a limited time, but fuuuuuck, nobody seems to be able to actually make them properly. The last time I had one, she filled the cup with frozen coke, and put a mouthful of soft-serve on the top. The time before that, they forgot the ice cream, but still charged me more for it.

It’s not that hard people. Soft serve island, and frozen coke moat. Actually, I explained that to somebody once and they asked me ‘what’s a moat’. There’s no face palm big enough for the stupidity.

Now I want a coke float. Ooh or a Spider!
