Its my new drink, I call it a ‘Cafe Frigetto’ ! Its espresso, ice, more ice, and real cream (yes, heavy whipping cream, not half&half)… and it’s ~~~~ frigid cold ~~~
Here’s how: In a pint glass filled to the top with ice, pour 2 or 3 shots of fresh brew’d espresso over, stir vigorously until ice stops melting and then more ice to the top. Lastly, a generous amount of heavy cream poured over it all…sinking & swirling down…never quite making it. Nectar !!!
Oh WOW that looks gooooooooooooood! Yum yum.
Go make one Martha ! 🙂 🙂 🙂 You’ll find you get more studying done, I’ll bet !
I think I just will. I am a fiend for coffee drinks. And I love them cold. This one will get me through finals! Hmmmm. Good idea. xx
Very inviting! I love coffee drinks with cream. Heavy cream for sure. Have you have coconut milk? It’s a nice sub for people who are lactose intolerant.
Hi Sarah, I’ve not got coconut milk, but you ought to make it… and call it ‘cafe coco frigetto !’ 🙂
Sounds and looks fabulous. Ermmm, zero carbs?? Cream??
Yeah… crazy… cream has no carbohydrate , it’s all fat. (however there are 6 gms fat per Tbsp, and 25mg of cholesterol !) A little goes a long way though. I’m fighting carbs, not fat. Its working ! Still down a stone. 🙂
I didn’t take that in – i read carbs as calories, duh!
Yeah, I got that… I thought you might have been thinking I meant cholestorol … all ‘c’ words. 😉
I was thinking coconut milk too… yum. We’re actually supposed to get some warm weather on the weekend (warm as in 70 degrees – this is the Pacific Northwest!) so maybe we’ll give this a try.
Last week I discovered a kombucha mojito recipe – very yummy on ice and a good way to drink all the kombucha I’m brewing these days!
Hi Myriam ! Okay… make it and maybe post it too? I’m watching your blog now 🙂
Oops – just found this reply. I’ll get on to that kombucha mojito soon! Our weather has changed to cooler and rainy, but I’ll make one for you all the same! 🙂
