Drink Master and Hollie's Drink.

Okay, so maybe I'm not a drink master. Yet. ;) However, I DID work on bar today for the first time since training, and I loved it! It was pretty stressful and busy, but I had a great time learning and getting used to how to make the drinks and work with other people. Apparently I tend to show my stress though because one of my co-workers asked if I have anxiety, because I get antsy when I'm trying to get through the drinks and announce them for the customers. Oops. :) But I'm so glad she mentioned something because it gave me something to work on! I really focused on making the drink quickly and then calming down when I actually served it, and I think I did a pretty good job. :) I messed up 3 drinks, but they were quick fixes, so it wasn't a big deal. All-in-all, not a bad first day makin' the coffee drinks! :D

And now.... on to my first survey drink. Hollie told me that she gets a small double (2-shot) americano with white chocolate, and either hot or iced. I decided to try it iced (I'll try it hot later on, I think), and... *drumroll please* I actually like it! Okay, I have to be honest. When I saw it, I was scared to try it. Americanos are just normally so strong because it's just espresso and water, but having the white chocolate in there really helped and I've been enjoying it! I'm not a huge fan of the aftertaste, but it's a very smooth drink and the 2-shots instead of 3 really evens out the taste. I would say that if you want a stronger coffee drink but not too strong, this would be the one to go for. The 3-shots will definitely be stronger (hot americanos get 2 shots normally, and iced normally get 3) but if you're looking for that extra kick of caffeine, I would go for it.

That's my novice opinion, anyway. :)

Well, I'm off to do other things for the day, and then go on a date with my hubby tonight! :D Love y'all! <3

PS - If you haven't told me your favorite drink yet, please do! Just go on my "Survey Time" post and leave a comment telling me your favorite drink, and I promise to try it on one of my shifts! (It might take a couple weeks because I've got a few drinks to try, but I'll try it as soon as I can!)
