"Klah: a hot, stimulating drink
made from tree bark and tasting faintly of cinnamon
- Anne McCaffrey: The Dragonriders of Pern
Since my stomach can't stand Cola, I usually drink coffee (trying to get rid of this habit) and tea when hacking Perl.
Of course, I like good fantasy novels, and Perl hackers should, as the Programming Perl glossary suggests, at least take some
look at ("Perl"++)++ books.
Okay, McCaffrey invented all these Pern things, no way I'm saying this is the One True Klah®, in fact, people have made
a lot of interesting klah recipes themselves. Let your imagination roam!
This is my adaptation of klah recipes found floating around the net.
- 3/4 cup of coffee
- 1/4 cup very very cold milk
- 2 tsp cocoa
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Mix things in this order and stir well.
For best results, don't try to make pot full of this stuff - one cup at time! Note that cinnamon doesn't mix too well with the coffee, so don't put
tons of it into cup (and the description said "tasting faintly of cinnamon", anyway =) and you probably want to stir it a bit every time
you take a sip, or otherwise it will end up into the bottom of the cup and you miss all the cool stuff.
