Big Easy
When the afternoon hits and I start to lose concentration, I feel like there are only two choices. Either take a nap or drink some caffeine. For me, taking a nap is never really an option—especially at work! So, I head to the DLM Coffee Bar in search of the perfect pick-me-up.
This summer, my go-to drink is our version of Vietnamese iced coffee called ‘The Big Easy.’ The DLM Coffee Bar cold brews coffee and chicory together which adds a distinctive floral, slightly wine-y flavor profile. Then it is sweetened up just like they do in Southeast Asia with a little bit of sweetened condensed milk, and poured over ice. It’s cold, refreshing, and tropically sweet. So not only do you get a lift from the caffeine, but the sugar helps to shake off the afternoon haze so you can get back on track and focused.
When the heat and the humidity starts to make you feel a little wilted, come by and try our Big Easy. It works for me every time!
