Sweet Sips & Southern Comfort

Have you ever tasted that one coffee shop drink that changed your life? (Ok, it didn’t really change my life, but I’ll never look at a coffee drink the same way..) The first sip mingled with your taste buds and altered them. Sweet, icy, caffeinated goodness…

I mean, I’ll always have a special place in my heart (and stomach) for green smoothies. I’ll never give those up. But one taste of the Bee Sting, and I was hooked.

  • Rice Milk
  • Espresso
  • Organic Honey
  • Ice
  • Love

These may be the ingredients of what dreams are made of… Or the drink deemed the Bee Sting over at a little coffee shop in the middle of nowhere…

With that cool name and eccentric interior…

The traditional drinks and uniquely inspirational ones…

Your healthy yet amazingly delicious (looking) eats…

How can one not swoon?

The Bee Sting: Espresso, rice milk, lots of organic honey, all over ice.

Elijah Bleu’s House of Coffee & Good Eats in downtown Truckee, California. This place reminded me of the dirty south, only clean and with really good coffee. It also reminded me of… New Orleans…?

Oh yeah, t-minus 72 hours until I leave for New Orleans!!!!!

Thursday is travel day! I’m heading to Louisiana for a little family vaca mixed with a business conference. I cannot wait! So many great places to see and eat at with such little time! Anyone have any suggestions on what to do/see/eat? I’m open to anything… well, with the exception of one thing…

If you could go anywhere for a business conference (or any conference) where would you go?

Have you ever been to New Orleans??

What is your favorite drink? (Coffee or not)
