Thanks to all that entered my Search for the Perfect Frosting Recipe giveaway! I’ve listed the winner at the end of this post.
Sometimes the funniest language mashups are completely unintentional.
Imagine my delight, when after lunch today, I found an unintentional language mashup that was just waiting to be discovered.
Yes, you read that right.
I took a picture of the menu with my little camera, but since it wasn’t clear enough, and in fact no mere diagram could convey what Coffee Crack truly is, I decided to sacrifice myself and order it so you could get a closer look.
Wow, only €1,70 for Coffee Crack? What a deal.
Here’s what it looked like. And what was Coffee Crack in the end? Well, imagine a rich, roasted espresso topped with super creamy, cool frothed milk (not foam, please!), drizzled with chocolate syrup, and oops, with a shot of coffee espresso liquor at the bottom (like the Borghetti I used in Drunken Devil’s Food Cupcakes). Well, not exactly a shot, but enough to make it a little “corretto.”
The crack is supposed to come from leaving the chocolate syrup rest on the cool milk foam and harden up so you can “crack” it with your spoon.
By the way, just in case the perspective on this photo is fooling you, that is not a milkshake-size glass, but rather slightly larger than a shot glass.
