“A wildfire is quickly coming your way! What thing/s do you grab when you only have a few minutes to make it out?” (I’ve saved any people or pets in there already!)

Er... hopefully I'd be dressed, otherwise I'd use my time to put some clothing and shoes on and grab some money and my documents, I guess. But assuming this would somehow be all prepared, I'd save the laptop, the Kindle, the photographic camera and on the way out to save my life I'd greedily grab a couple of unread books from my TBR pile, if I could.

Challenge: Slake Your Thirst hosted by Kimberly @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer
"Share your favorite drink recipe and the cover of your favorite/most anticipated summer read! Have fun with this, include pictures, the recipe (so we can all try it) and tell us about your book choice. Have you read it? Are you anxiously awaiting its release this summer? Why?"

My most anticipated summer read is easy:

Foretold, by Jana Oliver. I'm such a fan of Riley and Beck, so I'm dying to read the final part of their story... hopefully with a somewhat happy ending for them.

The beverage is harder to describe, since I improvise it everytime and don't follow a recipe, but I'll outline one:

Tricolored Coffee
- a shot of espresso
- whipped cream and canned milk at your discretion

It's really easy: you serve a shot of espresso and add a bit of canned milk - as much as you prefer. Be careful though, too much and it becomes too sweet. At this point, you can mix the coffee and the milk, but it's more fun not to do so, to obtain the tricolored effect. Add some whipped cream, again as much as you like, and voilá!, it should sorta look like the above picture. You can sprinkle the whipped cream with chocolate powder if you'd like.

  1. Yay, já tenho esse livro em pre-order! ^_^

    1. Ainda não fiz a pre-order, mas... estou para aqui quase a arrancar cabelos com a expectativa. xD

  2. Oh that drink looks live a slice of heaven! Yummy! Foretold looks perfect for a stormy summer night!

    1. Thanks! :) Hmmm, that's a good idea about the perfect setting for reading this book...

  3. *faz olhos gulosos ao tricolored coffee*
    O que é o canned milk?

    1. É leite condensado. (Pelo menos de acordo com o Google Tradutor, mais uma pesquisa nas imagens para confirmar que estava a usar bem a expressão.) :P

    2. D: !! leite condensado com um cafézito por cima, really? Jasus, tenho de experimentar.

    3. É delicioso, mas não se pode abusar. Tem mesmo de ser uma camada fininha de leite no fundo da chávena, ou fica super-enjoativo.
