To make this vibrant and refreshing drink, simply whisk together matcha powder, milk (dairy or plant-based), and a sweetener of your choice. Pour the mixture over a tall glass filled with ice and stir gently. Sip on this delightful blend of earthy matcha and creamy milk to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
For a zesty and invigorating twist on your classic espresso, the Espresso Tonic is a must-try. Start by pulling a shot of your favorite espresso. Fill a glass with ice cubes and pour the espresso shot over it. Top it off with tonic water and garnish with a slice of lemon or orange for an extra burst of citrusy goodness. This unique combination of coffee and tonic water creates a refreshing and effervescent beverage that will wake up your senses.
The Iced Mocha is a timeless classic that combines the rich flavors of chocolate and coffee into a decadent, chilled delight. Start by brewing a strong cup of coffee and allowing it to cool. In a separate glass, combine chocolate syrup, milk, and ice cubes. Pour the cooled coffee over the mixture and stir gently. For an added touch of indulgence, top it with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cocoa powder. This velvety, chocolate-infused coffee creation is the perfect treat on a hot summer day.
Vanilla Coffee Slush
If you're in the mood for a blended and icy coffee beverage, the Vanilla Coffee Slush is a dream come true. Start by brewing a pot of your preferred coffee and letting it cool. Pour the cooled coffee into an ice cube tray and freeze it until solid. Once frozen, blend the coffee ice cubes with milk, vanilla extract, and a sweetener of your choice until smooth. The result is a thick and creamy slushy drink that will transport you to coffee paradise.
For those who appreciate the pure and robust flavors of black coffee, the Iced Americano is a simple yet satisfying choice. Start by brewing a double shot of espresso and allowing it to cool. Fill a glass with ice and pour the cooled espresso over it. Add cold water to your desired strength, and if desired, a touch of simple syrup or a sweetener of your choice. Stir gently and enjoy the bold, refreshing taste of an Iced Americano.
