Boozy Iced Coffee- Averie Cooks

Hi Darlings! I hope you’re enjoying the bank holiday, both here and in the UK.  Although I’ve had an extremely busy week, I’m enjoying a marvelously long weekend; by getting lots of errands and projects done. While cruising Pinterest, I came across this lovely {and easy} Creamy Boozy Iced Coffee recipe, by one of my favourite foodie bloggers Averie Sunshine; who runs the blog Averie Cooks.  What I love about this particular iced coffee is that it contains Frangelico, which is a liqueur made with toasted hazelnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, cocoa and vanilla extract.  Averie takes some of the most fantastic food photography, trust me you’ll come away drooling.

I’m looking for some new drink recipes to try out this summer, and this will certainly be one of them.  I’ll post them as I find them, so that you can try them too.  Click the link or the image to be taken to the full recipe, I’m sure you’ll feel it’s worth it.

Wishing you a fabulously short week.

My XO Cafe…

One of my favourite liqueurs is Patrón XO Cafe.  This super smooth coffee liqueur which is a blend of Arabica coffee and premium Patrón Silver tequila, is one of the nicest drinks to have.

Great on its own; or try, half a cup Patron XO Cafe, a couple of tablespoons of Carnation milk with a few cubes of ice in a blender, rotated on high, will cause you to have created one creamy and potent cocktail.  Try it in your coffee one Sunday morning, you’ll never look at coffee the same way again!

Happy Wednesday!

A Scorcher!!!

A delicious Pimms Cup

It is absolutely scorching here in DC! We were up to 98 degrees on Wednesday, and yesterday, WeatherBug said we hit 100!!! It’s not cute, because at these temperatures, everything is wilting, including me. It’s a little hard to look chic while melting, unless you’re lounging at the pool at the King & Grove Tides Hotel (one of my favourites) in Miami.  So to keep you cool, here is one of my favourite summer time beverages, which is called a Pimms Cup  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/bobby-flay/pimms-cup-recipe/index.html

Also another variation of this recipe, (which is the recipe my sister taught me) is to pour approximately 2 ounces of Pimms No.1 in a tall glass and then fill the rest of the glass with D&G Jamaican Ginger Beer, add a slice of lime and… Cheers!

This is where I need to be ~ the King & Grove Tides Hotel in South Beach, Miami ~ click for details

Stay cool, drinks lots of water and enjoy your Pimms Cup!

Smooches!
