Christmas in a Cup



Mike and I are still sick (sadly) and I passed it on to my mom...a bug is definitely going around campus.  I needed some relief for my throat and Mike did as well.  If you follow our Little Cup of Heaven blog, you know how much we love Caramel Apple Spice from Starbucks.  It really does taste like Christmas in a cup and it tastes so good!

Notice, they actually spelled my name right.

I found the recipe for this tasty drink on Pinterest and we will DEFINITELY be trying it out.  If you beat us to it, let us know how it tastes!
