Hot Weather - Cool Espresso; Iced Americanos
The hot weather is here in Boston these days, and after a late night staying up for the Celtics - Lakers game, it's time to wake up and cool off at the same time. These are a favorite of mine in the summer. I typically switch over to a 100% Arabica blend for iced espresso, because the clean finish in the flavor profile works better for me.
Ingredients: Shot of your favorite espresso
8-10 ounce glass full of ice cubes
Sugar to taste
Milk or half and half to taste
Pull your shot, and pour it slowly over the ice while swirling. The full glass of ice should chill the espresso quickly. Fill the glass with cold water and stir in sugar (optional). Add a splash of milk or half and half as desired. Sit back and relax..... then repeat as needed!
You may want to play with the amount of espresso, sometimes I find a double shot into a 12 ounce glass of ice and then follow the general directions above is a bit more appealing, and a bit more of a punch too.
