Call me saint, because I don’t drink coffee or tea. Yeah you heard me right. I can “occasionally” drink coffee but never tea. My entire life I might have had just exactly one sip of tea, that’s it! And when the world started talking about green tea and how healthy it is, I stayed away from it, the only reason, “I don’t like tea”, and so I assumed green tea would be same as normal tea. After a while when I was trying to tone up and loose weight, I thought “I will make peace with green tea and give it a try”! The first sip made my eye balls roll. No, not because I loved the taste, but because I couldn’t gulp the sip. I struggled and managed to swallow it. And since hubby insisted me on trying a couple of more sips, I struggled to take it down. But, I did not like it. Later I tried a couple of other flavors, told myself it’s not that bad(was trying to trick my brain). Now I can manage to drink green tea if someone offers me.
Coming to coffee, I don’t hate it at all. It’s just that I don’t drink it on regular basis. And when friend meet up at coffee shop I enjoy my cappuccino. But that doesn’t tempt me to drink coffee every day. I LOVE my homemade fresh filter kapi (we call It degree kapi). The aroma of coffee brewing in the old traditional coffee maker is very tempting. While I love my hot filter kapi, I also love Ice cold coffee. Best drink to have in summer when you meet your friends who demand to have coffee.
Ice Cold coffee is very simple to make. All you do is brew the coffee, add chilled milk, sweetener and blend. And if you are in the mood to indulge, add a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. You can use coffee decoction made the traditional way using Indian coffee maker or use instant coffee powder. With just 4 ingredients and 5 minutes, this refreshing coffee is one of the best way to beat the heat if you are a coffee lover!
