7 Delish Ways You Didn’t Know You Could Drink Your Coffee

Coffee: “A beverage made by percolation, infusion, or decoction from the roasted and ground seeds of a coffee plant.” – Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Blah, blah, blah, however it’s made, all of us coffee drinkers know it’s the only thing that gets us out of bed in the morning. As much as our coffee is an extreme necessity for us to carry on our day with a pulse, it is important that we enjoy the coffee we are drinking at the same time. After all, coffee is not just a drink; it’s an experience. So without further ado, here are some different ways you can sip your cup of joe in the morning (or any time of the day).

1.  Doppio with lemon

This one is really easy, but has a kick that is definitely worth it for those hard-to-get-through-school-days. Simply brew a double shot of espresso, otherwise known as a doppio, and then squeeze a lemon around the rim of the serving glass. After, grab some raw sugar and sprinkle it around the now lemon-y rim of the glass. The result is a bold shot with a sweet and sour after taste.

2. Coffee smoothie

This is a great option for when you’re in the mood for more of a treat than a light coffee. However, there are many different recipes varying from dessert-like to light and frothy, so there is a coffee smoothie for everyone! A very caffeinated, but hearty coffee smoothie recipe can be found, here.

3. Coffee tonic

 

The beauty of this drink is that it is very light and easy to sip, while still providing that pick-me-up effect your day deserves. For those of you that are new to the coffee and tonic water combination, a guided recipe can be found, here

 

4 Iced coffee popsicles
