Totally Cool Espresso Drinks
Try any of Café Campesino's three espresso blends in these cool summertime drinks or experiment to come up with your own iced espresso creation.
Iced Cappuccino: Pour espresso (sweetened to taste) over ice and add cold milk. Do not mix or shake. Spoon frothed milk on top to create a layer of foam. Serves 1.
Iced Mochaccino: Pour freshly brewed espresso over ice and add chocolate syrup to taste. Fill with cold milk. Top up with foamed milk and whipped cream. Garnish with chocolate syrup or shaved chocolate. Serves 1.
Iced Cocoa Espresso: Mix a single espresso shot (cooled) with 2-3 teaspoons cocoa, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 cup of cold milk. Pour over ice in a tall glass and top with whipped cream. Serves 1.
Espresso Spritzer: Pour 1 cup of chilled espresso (sweetened to taste) over crushed ice in a tall glass. Fill the remainder of the glass with sparkling water. Give a quick stir and serve. Serves 1.
Iced Mint Mocha Espresso Smoothie: Put 1 1/4 cups cold espresso and 1 pint mint chocolate ice cream in a blender and blend on low speed. Spoon into sherbet or wine glasses, and garnish each serving with a chocolate mint wafer. Serves 4.
Tip: Don't let your coffee drinks get watered down with plain ice cubes. Freeze some coffee ahead of time in an ice cube tray.
