Iced Strawberry Colada Macchiato

I AM SO SORRY for not being around! I missssssssed reading my favourite blogs and I couldn’t even leave comments telling them how much I enjoy each post! 🙁

I know the ‘BUSY-AT-COLLEGE’ reason for my irregularity in posting has gotten pretty old by now and so today, I have a shiny, brand new reason to support my inability to post anything last week. A few hours after I published this amazing cappuccino spiked with spiced orange syrup, I began feeling some strange sensations in my head, like someone was knocking, no, rapidly smashing some blunt, heavy metallic object right into my temples. I could almost see 2 of everything – 2 phones, 2 clocks, 4 earphones– gosh! If that wasn’t enough I got hit by fever, the temperature creeping up every passing hour— 98 degrees, 99, 100, 101 and then it settled into a lull at 102 but refused to get back down like a playful happy child refusing to get down after getting atop a tree, seemingly enjoying the views!

I, for one, wasn’t enjoying any of it! I just had a happy day! I went hunting for some great antique // vintage cutlery, cookware and all so that I could do the desserts justice and present them in a way that looked just as good as they’d taste. Okay, so, one little detail I missed out, I did so in the midst of acute angry summer sun staring down at me, making me sweat bullets as I walked the busy {trust me, I love my peace and quiet} noisy {I’d be surprised if I could hear a pin drop for even like 5 straight seconds} streets of old Bombay. Don’t get me wrong, I love the feel of old Bombay. It just takes you back in time but when you know that you’ll be spending like 3 hours walking in that sweltering heat, you know that it’s going to get back at you with a vengeance!!!!

It was all happening right that hour! I can feel it till now and it’s enough to leave me shaking in my boots {read chappals} 😛

Okay, so the point is, I wasn’t myself and I needed comfort food …. enter, 2 min Ramen Noodles, 3 bags of chips and 1 tub strawberry swirl cheesecake ice cream.

Ahhh the food felt good, if only I’d known I’d be suffering the next ENTIRE WEEK, courtesy the COMFORT FOOD, I’d have eaten the boring dinner my mum had cooked!

And then I fell sicker. Went to the doctor and he was quick to conclude that I was suffering from a SERIOUS STOMACH INFECTION that would last at least a week!

There goes my full-planned one week! I missed allllll of the important deadlines, submissions, retests at college and now I’ll have to suffer a lot more to keep up than I already am!

But does it matter, not really???

I mean, I feel terrible and the absolute thought frightens me!!!!!!!!!!! But what can be done? NOTHING

Solution?

Go with the flow and enjoy this iced strawberry colada macchiato.

I remember making these and as I sipped them, I was instantly taken into the beaches. Warm, sandy, breezy. The salted water tickling my ugly feet and super awesome Hawaiian music playing in the backdrop! Ta-ta-la-la-la-ta

And then I was suddenly brought back to my dull routine life. Looked down at my coffee and realized I’d slurped the last of the coconutty strawberry caffeine goodness!

You can get transported to a beach of your choice too, take your pick, fix yourself this iced strawberry colada macchiato and I’ll meet you amidst the sun sand and salted gushing water!
