Coffee coke float
To serve four, make half a litre of strong, good quality coffee from freshly roasted espresso beans. Allow to cool, then chill in the fridge, preferably overnight. Add single cream to the chilled coffee to taste, mix thoroughly, then pour into four tall glasses until each is just over half full. Add a scoop of vanilla icecream to each glass, then top with coca cola. Serve with a long spoon for getting the ice cream from the bottom of the glass.
Honey iced coffee
This refreshing drink has a real taste of summer. To serve four, make a half a litre of fresh coffee from good quality espresso beans. While the coffee’s still hold, stir in a teaspoon of runny honey per person, and mix until dissolved. Allow to cool then chill in the fridge, preferably overnight. Stir vigorously to mix in the honey again, then add milk or cream to taste. Half fill four tall glasses with crushed ice, and pour the coffee over. Serve with a straw and a piece of chocolate-covered honeycomb on the side.
This icy-cold drink is a great pick-me-up for hotter days. It’s made with instant coffee, so it’s a good store cupboard standby if you’ve run out of fresh coffee beans. To serve four, you’ll need four teaspoonfuls of good quality instant coffee, or to taste, half a litre of cold water, some crushed ice and four teaspoonfuls of icing sugar. Put all the ingredients in a food processor, and pulse until the ice has completely broken down and the mixture is smooth and icy. Serve immediately.
