So, I work at a bookstore/espresso bar, and some weird shit happened today. I was making a strawberry cremosa, and when I put the cream in, it had some weird reaction with the syrup and made some pink cottage cheese-looking stuff and started expanding and spilling over the top of the cup. Shocked
Does anyone know what the hell happened and how I can keep it from happening in the future?

Thanks.

Possibly too much syrup, the citric acid in some of those can curdle creams if you're using actual cream

This'd be my guess. I don't know what's in a cremosa, but if it's at all citrus flavored or carbonated, you have to be real careful, because that stuff will curdle cream.

the cream might have been on the verge of going bad. I'm a caterer and i was filling a stainless steel thermos with cream for a coffee drop one time and once the cream hit the coffee, it curdled instantly, even though the cream looked fine & it was before the expiration date. let your dairy provider know so you can get a credit for it.

I think the real question would be: did it taste good?

if it did, just call it the "house special"

I'd buy it ^_^
