Dedicated follower of cold-brew coffee?
Totally with you. Smooth, ice-cold and delicious, it's the pick-me-up summer drink that dreams are made of.
Putting together a really good glass of the stuff is a lot easier than it looks. And you don't have to stick to the tried and tested formula of milk and beans – you get to mix it up.
From coconut-topped to Vietnamese-style, try one of these over the weekend for a caffeine hit with style:
1. Vietnamese-style iced coffee
Sweet, condensed milk-laden iced coffee is a Vietnamese staple, and the creamy dairy blending into blackness is an Instagram snap waiting to happen. Get the recipe here.
2. Minty iced coffee
Hello, refreshment. A herby syrup brings this to sprightly life. Click here for the recipe.
3. Boozy iced coffee
Perhaps not Monday morning fare, but when you fancy the liquid equivalent of a disco nap, this is exactly what you need. See how to make it here.
4. Vanilla iced coffee
Like your cold brew on the sweet side? Then a trickle of vanilla bean syrup (homemade, natch) is what you need. Try out this recipe over the weekend – it'll take a little longer than the rest.
5. Coconut-topped iced coffee
Exotic flavours meld in this long, tall drink that's perfect for beachside-style sipping. Even if you are just in your kitchen. It's all about the power of the imagination, people. Grab the how-to here.
