Refreshing Summer Drink Ideas
Here in the NW we finally have seen a few days of summer-like weather. With warmer weather I start to think about tasty summer beverages like iced coffee, sun tea, and smoothies (even green ones!)
Here is a tip to make iced coffee on the cheap using leftover coffee: pour any extra coffee after your morning pot is cooled into ice cube trays. Freeze. Fill your reused cup full of coffee cubes, then fill the rest of the way with milk and add flavor or chocolate as desired. Top with whip cream and add a straw for extra fun! I sometimes throw the coffee cubes in the blender with milk and chocolate to make a granita of sorts, and that is yummy too.
