Cold Brewed Java

I LOVE Coffee and most coffee flavored things, candy, ice-cream and liqueur. I like it hot and cold and super bold. I drink it in the rain. I never pour it dwn the drain. Once summer rolls around, I often find the warm humid mornings too much for a hot beverage. That’s when I turn to iced coffee. Cool, refreshing and a little creamy mixed with cashew or almond milk and a splash of sugar-free syrup. What a way to begin any day, caffeine and rich-brewed flavor.

Sundays are my fundays….to quote the Bangles: my I don’t have to run days. Sundays scream for my Lazy Sunday Special-coffee treat. A shot or so, of my fave liqueur or brandy added to my cold brew and a dollop of whipped cream. Oh yeah, oh yum. One of the best ways I know to chillax and savor the day.
