I’ll admit that peppermint has become one of my favorite drinks taste since I first started ordering a drink in a coffee shop.  In fact, I believe that in the  “chocolate peppermint steamer ” is the first drink I ordered at the coffee shop back in high school, when my friend Maggie brought me to a place of small shopping environment in Wichita is called The Perk.  (Yes, it was during the time’s “friend’s”.


Ironically, Maggie is now really have that coffee shop.  And I also still love peppermint chocolate steamships, though now I know that I was actually just ordered the peppermint hot chocolate.  When made with white chocolate hot, though, the drink is still feels like a special treat.
