Cool Down with Coffee

Finally!! The warm weather is here and people are out and about. For those of you in a four season location, this is a very exciting thing. Winter seems all too long here in upstate NY. I know for myself at least that I love a nice cold beverage to beat the heat. And lets face it, the usual hot cup-o-joe that gets me through the winter just doesn’t cut it. I've found a few easy recipes to make some yummy treats to cool down.

Chilly Espresso

Start by brewing a double shot of espresso and pour into a cocktail mixer. Add three ice cubes and any flavoring and shake well. Pour into an empty glass. If you pour slowly you should be able to create a nice, long-lasting crema on top of the drink.

Americano Cool Down

Brew a double shot of espresso and mix with an equal amount of water in a cocktail shaker. Add three ice cubes and flavoring and shake well. Take an empty glass, add ice to the top and strain your mixture into the cup.

Arctic Latte

Pour a double shot of espresso into a cocktail shaker with an equal amount of milk. Add three ice cubes to the shaker and any flavoring and shake well. Use about 5 ice cubes and blend in a blender until ice is crushed. Add crushed ice into empty glass and pour the contents of the shaker into the glass.
