Beat the Heat Series ~ Cold Coffee Recipe with Filter Decoction

The mercury touched 45 degrees C yesterday.  it was unbelievably and unbearably hot. K has refused his morning coffee all of this summer and prefers to have a glass of cold coffee. I joined him with a glass of my own yesterday. I made mine with filter coffee decoction, since we dont have instant coffee at home. It was the most soothing drink to chill with.

Cold Coffee (makes 2 servings)

1 cup strong filter coffee decoction

250 ml frozen milk (i stock extra milk in the freezer for emergencies, i used this. alternatively use 2 cups of very cold milk)

3 teaspoons of sugar (add more or less according to preference)

8 cubes of ice (increase if not using frozen milk)

Put all the ingredients in the blender jar of a mixer and whizz for a minute in short 10 second bursts, till everything is incorporated and frothy. pour into tall glasses and enjoy.
