Today is Thanksgiving and you are by now already sick of your family, because they're great and all and you love them, but enough already! But even if you aren't, you saint you, Go Get Em Tiger in Los Angeles is still giving you a reason to get out of the house with their Thanksgiving Day-only specialty drinks. And this year, there are even some you can take home.
Between 8:00am and 2:00pm today at their Highland Park location, GGET continues their yearly tradition of serving “the most ambitious versions possible of that staple holiday coffee drink menu,” a premise they describe as “absurd” in an email detailing this year's tasty treats. And this year may just be the ambitiously absurd yet.
There is of course the Pumpkin Spice Latte, consisting of “pumpkin spice syrup, milk, nutmeg caramel, espresso, boba, pumpkin cream cheese topping and big hunk of housemade pumpkin seed brittle.” The Peppermint Mocha—made with starlight whipped cream, peppermint chocolate sauce, espresso, and a peppermint sugar cookie—comes in a chocolate cup. A FREAKING CHOCOLATE CUP! And there is a Gingerbread latte soft serve, with a “chocolate molasses magic shell, ginger molasses cookie crumbles, and crystallized ginger, on a classic cake cone.”
But the best drink this year—at least in terms of “good excuses to get you out of the house for just like, 10 minutes please”—is the Eggnog Latte. Housemade eggnog, espresso, and ready to drink, you can grab a couple of roadies to bring back for the fam while needed some much-needed not family time. It's a win-win for everyone involved.
It truly is the most wonderful time of year.
