Spring is finally here! You have spent months huddled in cold dorms and apartments, only braving the cold for class and the occasional party. You are ready to wear flip-flops and throw a frisbee around – even if it’s only 55 out. Unfortunately, with spring comes finals, and we’re all going to need an extra boost to keep us focused, or, more appropriately, awake. This iced espresso is not only low on calories (so you can excuse a diet consisting solely of Cheetos and Dairy Store ice cream), but it is packed with the lifeblood of finals, caffeine, and is also guaranteed to cool you down. So instead of feeling guilty for your despicable diet during finals, you can just feel guilty about not spending enough time at the library. Enjoy, and happy spring!
