New Quiz: What’s Your Glass of Wine?

What glass of wine should you pour yourself?

Do you like a glass of wine on occasion? I do, and I especially enjoy a glass of wine when the weather starts to cool down like it has been. Like many people, I like wine quite a bit but don’t know much about it. I’ll be honest – I tend to go for the cheaper stuff at Trader Joe’s!

I recently have been reading up more on wine though… not to be a snob but to make sure I can drink the kind of wine I’m craving. Like when the weather gets cooler, I’ll switch to darker reds instead of the white summery Texas wines I love so much. Anyway, some of my new found knowledge inspired me to write a quiz.

Whether you’re a wine lover or wine hater, you’ll know more about yourself after taking my latest personality test: What’s Your Glass of Wine? Let me know what you get and what you think of your result. Are you a big wine drinker?

What’s Your Fall Drink Personality? 8 Quizzes to Find Out!

A chile mocha (or plain ole spicy mocha) is one of my favorite fall drinks!

A chile mocha (or plain ole spicy mocha) is one of my favorite fall drinks!

I don’t know about you, but my cravings always tell me when it’s fall. And the number one thing I crave in the fall are warm drinks. Yes, even during the warmer days of Texas fall, I still appreciate a warm and toasty drink on those chilly mornings.

Each fall I am inspired to write a couple new drink quizzes – and to retake some old favorites. Here are my personal picks for fall drink quizzes from Blogthings. Best taken with a warm drink, obviously 🙂

What Autumn Drink Are You? – Let’s start with the basics. What fall drink are you most like? I recommend this quiz to anyone who is not the craziest about trendy fall drinks, because it includes things like beer, apple cider, and mulled wine. With eight outcomes, this covers all the old and modern classics.

What Part of a Pumpkin Spice Latte Are You? – Are you crazy about the PSL? Or maybe just crazy for pumpkin spice? If so, this is the quiz for you. I will be the first to admit that I was a Pumpkin Spice Latte skeptic, and while the Starbucks version is too sweet for me, I do enjoy making my own homemade version!

What Starbucks Fall Drink Are You? – Do you think outside the pumpkin shell? This quiz celebrates all things fall at Starbucks – including Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I recently updated this quiz to include a couple new Starbucks drinks, so I think you’ll enjoy taking it, even if you’ve taken it before.

What Part of a Chai Tea Are You? – When it comes to fall drinks, I tend to go classic and prefer the perfect chai tea (plenty spicy, not too sweet). So of course, I had to include my quiz that pays homage to this delicious beverage!

What Does Your Latte Say About You? – While it’s true that a latte can be enjoyed year round, I really start to crave them in the fall. (Iced lattes are fine in summer, but they aren’t really lattes to me.) Give this quiz your latte preferences, and find out all about yourself!

What Starbucks Hot Chocolate Are You? – Hot chocolate is honestly more of a winter drink for me, but I do crave it on the coldest fall nights. I couldn’t leave this favorite cool weather treat out of the lineup, so here you go. Warning: I *always* crave a hot chocolate after taking this quiz.

The Cappuccino Test – So many fall drinks are such big treats, but sometimes I want something lighter and more portable. For my quick autumn fix, nothing is better that a small cappuccino. Do you agree? Pick your favorite cappuccino in this image quiz, and see what it says about you.

What Flavor Mocha Are You? – If I had to make one prediction about fall drinks, it would be that the mocha latte is going to be the new pumpkin spice latte one of these days. What do you think? I wouldn’t mind – I love a good mocha, especially if you make it spicy. Take this quiz to find out what mocha best suits you!

 

What Fall Drink Are You?

I know, I know, it’s not technically fall yet 🙂 Don’t tell that to the people making drinks! All the coffeeshops around me are very into promoting fall drinks, even though it’s been near 100F some days here. This weekend has ushered in some cooler temperatures in my neck of the woods (I might even pull out my jeans), and that means I’m ready to switch from iced drinks to hot drinks.

Are you a fan of fall drinks? I am, especially once it gets super cold. I don’t like my drinks over flavored, but a little extra something always is welcome. If you’re a fan of fall or nice drinks, you’ll like my latest quiz: What Fall Drink Are You? Let me know what you get on this one 🙂

Discussion question: What’s your favorite thing to drink in the fall?

The Warmth and Coziness of the Perfect Latte

What does latte are say about you?

It’s been feeling quite wintery every morning, even though it isn’t officially winter in the northern hemisphere. I know I’m a wimp, but I start to get cold when it’s even ten degrees or so above freezing 🙂 So right now, I’m sitting here with a warm sweater on and a blanket around my legs… and I’m still cold. I sure wish my dog would cuddle with me.

When there’s a chill in the air, I crave a creamy, delicious latte.  Make mine vanilla or hazelnut please! Something about the warmth and smoothness really perks me up on a cold day. Of course, I’m sure the caffeine doesn’t hurt either. I like to have a latte before breakfast to start up my body a bit. The milk (or in my case soy / almond milk) keeps me full while I’m still waking and warming up.

One of the things I love best about lattes is the art. If you ask me, latte art deserves to be recognized as its own art form. It’s extremely beautiful, and I think it takes talent to make some of the more complicated designs. I feel tickled whenever a barista makes a special little design in my drink. That’s what originally inspired The Latte Art Test. Take it, and tell me if it’s accurate for you!

Also, comment and let me know if you’re a big latte drinker. Where is your favorite place to get a latte? Starbucks? Coffee bean? An indie place? Your own kitchen? Also, what is your ideal latte like? Mine is made with really high quality espresso that’s a little sweet and chocolatey tasting. Add to that a high quality almond milk (or soy barista blend in a pinch). Then I’d like it topped with just a dusting of cocoa and cinnamon. That’s really not too much to ask for is it? 😉

What Starbucks Hot Chocolate Are You?

I love hot chocolate this time of year. It’s my favorite indulgence on a frosty winter night. Growing up, I had the simplest of hot chocolates as a treat – heated up in a pan on the stovetop. I used to love to have hot chocolate and my grandma’s homemade rolls as a snack on the coldest of winter days.

It wasn’t until I was older that hot chocolate became more of a thing culinarily speaking. I remember the first Mexican hot chocolate I had in southern California on an usually cold night, and I couldn’t believe how flavorful it was. Over the years I’ve sampled many different hot chocolates from various cafes, and I’ve even made a few interesting ones at home. (Nutella hot chocolate anyone?)

My love of hot chocolate inspired me to write a quiz about the creative hot chocolate flavors Starbucks comes up with. I’m always drawn into their flavor combinations, although at times they are a bit sweet for me. I like to recreate them at home quite a bit, and they are always good for a fun wintery treat. Do you also like Starbucks hot chocolate? Take my quiz to see which one you should get: What Starbucks Hot Chocolate Are You?

What do you think of this yummy quiz? Comment below with your result. Also let me know what your favorite style of hot chocolate is… it doesn’t have to be Starbucks 🙂 And if you prefer to get your hot chocolate a little more indie style, I have a quiz for that too: What Flavor Hot Chocolate Are You?

Discussion question: What is your ultimate favorite hot chocolate? Do you add extra goodies like whipped cream or marshmallows.
