TURTLE COFFEE COCKTAIL FOR NATIONAL COFFEE DAY

Thanks to Staples for sponsoring today’s post.  As always, all opinions are honestly my own. 
Before I share the recipe, first things first.  I have to give you a sneak peek at my new toy, the Starbucks Verisimo Brewing System.  It’s the next best thing to having your favorite barista living in your house.  It’s so easy to use, and you can quickly brew espresso, an Americano, a Café Latte, brewed coffee, and so much more at the touch of a button or two.
