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.
