Cold and Cozy: Enjoying Winter Drinks in Summer

Add Ice

This is the cheapest way to ensure your coffee can still be drunk on a hot summer morning. It’s also the most obvious. However, you can still be creative even in the most boring of places. Freezing slices of lemon in ice will add an extra citrusy taste to your tea instantly! You can also buy fun ice cube trays because why not? Who wouldn’t want to sip on a cold cup that has floating references to your favorite movie series in it?

While these may require actually getting up and going to a coffee shop, you can’t deny they’re delicious. Now notorious for being the bane of baristas everywhere, these are the equivalent of coffee milkshakes that will wake you up and cool you down simultaneously.

This is your way around the horrendously long line that seems to exist in every coffee shop at all times. If you want frozen coffee, just throw some coffee, ice and ice cream into a blender. This also allows your creative license to flow; in your kitchen you are the head chef. Make use of all of those hot chocolate packets and add the powder to your mixture. Experiment! Make a Chai tea and Rocky Road concoction. If it tastes terrible, at least you’ll know for next time.

Think about it: fruit and chocolate are best friends. The same stands for coffee and tea. Throwing some coffee grounds or hot brewed tea into your blender with bananas and strawberries sounds wonderful. The real moral of the story is to buy a blender.
