Sunday Recipe(s): Two Lovely Beverages

Well, there’s a heat wave going on, so I thought I’d share some of the delicious drinks I’ve made to cool off.

Quickie Iced Mocha

1 cup cold-brewed coffee
3/4-1 cup chocolate milk

To make cold-brewed coffee, combine 1 oz. of ground coffee per 16 oz. of water and leave at room temperature overnight. Strain through a coffee filter and refrigerate. When you have cold coffee, mix it with chocolate milk, to taste, than pour over ice. This made two tall glasses, since the ice takes up a lot of space. You could also use plain milk (or substitute) and your own choice of flavor and sweetener.

Green Tea Lime Spritzer

2 Tbsp. lime juice
6oz. cold green tea
seltzer water (I used orange-flavored)

Pour lime juice and seltzer over ice and stir. Top with seltzer.


About Kyniska

In ancient Sparta, women were encouraged to train their bodies and minds as warriors did, in preparation for an adult life of strength and intellect. They strove to win a husband through strength as well as beauty. I try to live my life by this philosophy, that athletic ability and accented beauty can co-exist, yielding a richer whole.
