Jamaican Iced Coffee
My Jamaican Iced Coffee today @Cafe Blue
If you love Jamaican blue mountain coffee, chances are that you'll also enjoy this novel alternative - Jamaican iced coffee!
I just had one today at Cafe Blue at Fontana here in Montego Bay on my way home; very refreshing I tell you!
And so I thought I won't be selfish and share it with you :-)
I enjoyed mine with soy milk and brown sugar (pictured above) instead of condensed milk or whole milk etc, but that's a personal preference - trying to minimize the dairy intake :-)
The recipe is pretty simple, but for the benefit of all my readers, I'll now share three easy recipes - one from a friend and the other two sourced online.
Jamaican Iced Coffee (Rum Based)
- - 1 oz dark rum (Appleton Jamaica Rum)
- - 1 oz coffee liqueur (tia maria, kahlua)
- - 3/4 oz whipping cream
- - 4 oz hot black coffee (blue mountain coffee)
Shake and strain into a wine goblet filled with crushed ice. Add short straws, a sprig of mint, and serve.
No Garnish necessary as this drink is prepared with the Jamaica’s finest and most admired coffee since at least the early 19th century.
The following, condensed milk iced tea, was extracted from Cafe Blue's Facebook page:
Jamaican Condensed Milk Iced Tea
6 to 8 servings
- 4 cups of very strong Cafe Blue coffee, hot
- ¼ cup condensed milk (more or less, depending how sweet you like it)
- 6 cardamom pots, optional
- 2 cups whole milk
In a serving pitcher, add the hot coffee and mix in the condensed milk. Add the cardamom seeds and let the coffee cool. Once cooled, remove the cardamom seeds and add the whole milk.
Place it in the refrigerator until really cold. Serve over ice.
AND FINALLY, a more healthier alternative from http://ifoodreal.com...
Vanilla Iced Tea
- 1/2 - 1 cup ice
- 1/2 cup coffee, cold
- 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk, unsweetened
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Pinch of stevia (optional)
In a tall glass add ice. Pour coffee, almond milk and vanilla extract on top. Add a pinch of stevia, agave syrup if you wish. Stir with a long spoon and enjoy immediately.
You can also add cinnamon, nutmeg or cocoa powder.
Now you have a new way (in three flavours) to enjoy your favourite Jamaican coffee.
