I discovered rather a nice warming drink a couple of nights ago, a result of running out of ingredients. In this case it started from having no simply tea.
There was some left-over chai from the previous tenant so I have been drinking that the last few days, and actually liking it. This time however it was late and Dublin's January weather called for something a little more comforting and tasty. It was the the local supermarket's turn to run out: soy milk. But not chocolate soy milk, so in that went. To complement the chai spice I "ran out" i.e. pored the remaining shot or so of Jack Daniels in as well. Delicious!
(Of course, I had another bottle of JD there. Improvizing around a lack of eggs, milk, flour, ... is one thing, but to go dry on Old No. 7...)
