She’s a cyborg. She’s a mechanic. She’s…Cinderella? Meet Cinder, the star of the first installment in Marissa Meyer’s fantastic Lunar Chronicles series. If you’re a fan, look at this recipe for a tasty beverage based on Cinder. I haven’t made this yet, but it looks like it might be pretty good. (I’m a little suspicious of the Oreo cookie, though. Maybe a gingersnap instead?) For those of you too lazy to click on a link, here’s the recipe:
1 cup water
1 bag of your favorite green tea
1/4 cup of low fat milk, chilled (almond milk would be great, too)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 crumbled Oreo cookie (chunky and black like cinders)
tiny pinch of black cardamom (smoky flavor of cinders)
- Pour water into a microwave-safe mug and heat for 2.5 minutes. Then place tea bag in this hot water and let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
- If you like, froth milk with a milk frother.
- Remove tea bag from tea. Add brown sugar and milk to tea and stir.
- Sprinkle with crumbled Oreo and a tiny bit of black cardamom to taste.
