The summer season is here! And that means putting a new spin on your favorite beverages to cool off and enjoy the sun. And yes, that includes coffee. You can use simple ingredients to add an exciting difference to your regular coffee order and give it a refreshing makeover for the summers. Here are some great coffee recipes to try:

A spoon, coffee beans and a coffee cup

Coffee Lemonade

Nothing says summer like fresh lemonade. You can enjoy both coffee and lemonade at once with a coffee lemonade. This drink is quite popular in Brazil so if you want to feel like you're on an exotic vacation getaway, give this a try. Use 1 cup of your regular coffee and add half a cup of orange juice to it along with 1/3 cup of lemon juice. You can also add 1/3 cup of honey if you're looking to increase the sweetness. If the coffee's taste isn't strong enough, simply add an espresso shot into the mixture. Serve with ice cubes!


Iced Coffee with Cream Froth

This coffee recipe is easy to make and adds fun with a textured layer of cream on top. You can use a coffee maker to make your coffee brew or make it like you'd make your regular brew. Set the brew in the refrigerator to chill, and while that's happening, you can work on the cream froth. In a bowl, add 1/3 cup of heavy cream and a tablespoon of sugar. Also, add a pinch of salt and use a whisk or an electric frother to mix it all till it's thick. Then add your cold brew into a cup and top it off with the cream mixture.

Coffee Popsicles

This is a simple recipe and adds a mature preference to favorite your childhood treat. Use a popsicle mold and fill it with a ½ inch of sweetened cream. Freeze it for an hour and then fill the rest with a cold coffee mixture. Insert the popsicle sticks and cover with a foil before freezing. Enjoy the cold treat to ward off the hot weather!

Vanilla Cream Cold Brew

If you want to add a smooth, rich flavor to your regular coffee, you can use this vanilla recipe. It's perfect for enjoying your summer evenings outdoors. Use a mason jar to soak 2/3 cup of coffee grounds in water. Let it soak overnight and strain. Add the mixture to equal parts of water in a cup. For the vanilla cream mixture, add 2 tablespoons of sugar, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, and ½ cup of cream into a small bowl and microwave for a few seconds till the sugar is completely dissolved. Add this mixture to the coffee and stir well.
