Since letting y’all know about the Second Cup Summer Drink Festival last week, I hope you’ve had a chance to try out the NEW Frozen Lemonade and NEW Black Cherry Smoothie! I mean, let’s put it in perspective… you’ve got one drink that is crisp, clean and refreshing; with a light and tangy real lemonade flavour – and another that is made with real black cherry fruit puree (and everyone knows that cherries are the BEST fruit on earth). Super yum!
All summer long, Second Cup will feature one of five icy beverages – Chillatte, Matcha Green Tea Frappé, Frrrozen White Hot Chocolate or the above-mentioned Frozen Lemonade and Black Cherry Smoothie – at a special price, but for those of you who want to take this tasty trend home, the experts at Second Cup offer the following iced coffee recipes and tips to help you bring out your inner brrrr-rista.
Iced Latte: Fill a tall glass 2/3 full with ice. Prepare a fresh double shot of espresso, and simply pour over ice. Top up glass with dairy of your choice; stir and serve. Barrista Tips:
– Espresso should be used immediately after preparation.
– Stir chocolate syrup into the espresso shot before pouring over ice to make your Iced Latte an Iced Mocca.
– For a healthier choice, switch your milk to skim.
If your Iced Latte is too milky, add an additional shot of espresso. Most people switch to large glasses when preparing iced drinks, and if your standard espresso shot is 2oz, and then you add both ice and milk to the espresso, you’ll naturally end up with a latte that is very milky.
To get sugar to dissolve completely in an Iced Latte, put the sugar into your espresso cup/pitcher before you drop your espresso shot, then stir it together after you’ve produced your shot. This will dissolve the sugar entirely before you pour the espresso over your ice.
