Espresso is such a delightful beverage, and it is also the base of many other treats. How you enjoy, it is completely up to your taste-buds and your mood for the moment.
The first thing that anyone should know about an espresso beverage is that espresso can be used, re-used, and repeatedly re-used to make the perfect beverage for your taste buds! Indeed, espresso is such a delightful coffee drink that there are so many ways to squeeze out a different espresso recipe every time.
If you are going to become an expert in making espresso beverages, then the chances are that you already know how fine or coarse you need to grind the espresso coffee beans. Unless you leave the grinding up to the actual espresso machine, grinding the espresso coffee beans is one of the foremost duties one has to do to get the espresso taste just right!
After one has perfected the art of making espresso beverages, though, one fun thing to do is to move onto bigger and better beverages that are also made from the espresso base. For example, a latte is just one of the recipes that one can make from espressos, but a chilled espresso beverage is also another way to have a fun beverage.
Let’s face it: even though espresso drinks are typically consumed as warm or hot beverages, there are plenty of other ways to combine espresso to turn it into a better drink for some people. One of those ways is by making a chilled espresso beverage, and here are the directions for accomplishing just that:
Make the Espresso
Of course, the first and foremost thing you’ll want to do when making a chilled espresso beverage is to make the espresso itself. If you are an expert at making espressos anyway, then the best thing to do would be to grind the espresso coffee beans just as you would for a normal espresso.
After the espresso is made, though, the next thing that should be done is to add ice to a blender or other food grinder type. However, a blender really works best for this part, especially because blenders are made to allow easier access to food in and out of the compartment. Nevertheless, a large scoopful of ice should be added to the blender.
Add Other Ingredients
The next thing that one will want to do when creating their chilled espresso beverage is to add a bit of sugar to the espresso itself. Because the espresso is already sweetened, there will only be a couple of tablespoons of sugar that needs to be added. After the sugar is added and completely stirred, then the whole espresso beverage should be added on top of the blender’s ice. The only thing left to do for the beverage is to grind and combine the two ingredients.
After the mixture is poured out, then one will naturally have a great chilled espresso beverage. The chances are that if one loves chilled mocha lattes, then a chilled espresso beverage will be on their list of favorite beverages as well!
