It’s so delicious, I bet you don’t get back to drinking the original whether you can tolerate it or not.

  1. now if I leave out the vodka (I don’t drink) and the coffee (not that either…) and use Elmlea instead of cream (dairy free too *le sigh*) it’ll last longer, cos Elmlea has a longer fridge life… and might even taste like something a little special… ;)
