Summer is here us and if it’s going to be even half as hot as last year then you’d be advised to start thinking about adding some iced options to your tea and coffee menus.
Here from CoffeeTea 5 the best of iced drinks in this summer:
1. ICED COFFEE
Of course, the first place is iced coffee! You can add milk, sugar or milk creme for the Freddo cappuccino, or simply drink black Fredo Eespresso or ice Americano. But the trend of this summer is just cold brewing coffee. It’s time to trade in that hot cup of morning office sludge for a refreshing cold-brew coffee. Different than iced coffee, which is just your average hot coffee diluted with ice (and sometimes additional water), cold-brew coffee is made without any added heat, resulting in a much bolder flavor, less acidity, and … hallelujah! … a more potent caffeine kick. These cold brew coffee picks also make a killer base for making tasty DIY coffee-infused cocktails at home this summer.
2. ICED TEA
Iced tea is a beloved summer beverage and a dependable choice at any restaurant. Iced tea is easy to make and endlessly adaptable. You can brew it light or strong. You can drink it unsweetened or sweetened. Plus, once you’ve got the basics down, you can start getting more adventurous with your recipes.The trend of this summer is to add fresh berries and fruits to cold tea. Instead of sugar, homemade syrups with fruit teas and berries are very popular. Decaf tea is also very popular this season!
Smoothies are simply awesome version of the summer period. Because you can use as a basis for smoothing orange juice, milk, yogurt, just water and various fruits, everything that you like. It can be a great alternative to breakfast, as well as refreshing in hot weather. Again, the trend of the season is the use of berries, vegetable milk and the use of natural sugar substitutes.
4. ICED CHOCOLATE
Iced chocolate perfect for summer, for company or just for a summer night. The trend of this year in the preparation of cold chocolate was the use of organic pure chocolate. The use of pure cocoa without added sugar is also becoming popular. For making cold chocolate, you can use water, vegetable milk or regular milk if you wish.
Milk shakes are also included in this list, because one of the most popular drinks in children.
But as the above shows, the trends of this season in cold drinks, and not only in drinks, are the use of natural organic products, the rejection of sugar or natural sweeteners, and the use of vegetable milk.
