So far, 2008 has been off to a very hectic start. I guess partying to usher in the new year is an indication of how the year would be like. To top it off, two months into 2008 and I’ve already consumed more alcohol than I ever did the whole of 2007. I’m so looking forward to the coming months. Adding fuel (or alcohol) to this streak is Delifrance’s latest line of “naughty” drinks: spiked coffee!
There are three spiked coffee variants: Irish Kiss Baileys, a heady mix of rich espresso with Irish cream, served in a wine glass with lemon sugar lining the rim; Mayan Passion Kahlua, an exotic mix of espresso, Kahlua and whipped cream served either hot or iced, and; Sputnik Vodka Espresso, a drink, according to Delifrance President Mr. William Tan Unitong, that will send you to the skies with its intense combination of espresso and vodka.
Spikedafter5.com recommends some of Delifrance’s bestsellers to go with the spiked coffee of your choice. If you’re looking for a hearty meal after a long day at the office, they recommend the Seafood Marinara Pasta with its juicy shrimp, rich marinara sauce over linguine pasta. As a light snack, the Half Premiere Clubhouse is the perfect mix of meat, veggies and freshly baked bread. The Baguette Chips and Dip would do well for sharing with friends; golden brown baguette chips served with egg mayo, tuna onion or pimiento cheese dip. As a treat after a long day (or week), indulge yourself with the Flaming Choco Lava Cake, a very rich absolutely heavenly dessert.
The food was good and the coffee, even better. I really loved the Oriental Shrimp Salad: fresh greens tossed with mixed seafood and yummy vinaigrette. The Flaming Choco Lava Cake was the crowd favorite, not just because of its rich flavor but also because of the flame. Everytime a waiter comes to deliver a cake, everyone would gather around him to take a photo. As for the spiked coffee… well, I liked them all! Kahlua: Yum. Bailey’s: Yumm. Vodka: Yummmmmmmmm. Oh, and the espresso’s good, too.
