Love a good mojito? While this recipe is espresso-based, rather than rum-based, the impact is the same -- a delicious summer-ready, refreshing drink with a unique twist. Best of all? It is easy to make and incorporates fresh mint and limes. If you want to throw in some rum, why not? I won't tell 😉!!!
Call it a guilty pleasure, tell me it is for kids, I don't care. For me, there is nothing like the taste of a KitKat bar! I have been forced, once or twice, because of a demanding schedule, to pull a snack from a vending machine. I am unashamed to admit that if available, my hard-earned quarters go directly to A37 (that is where the KitKat bar was located at my previous job.) This recipe combines the flavors of that wonderful snack with coffee, and ice cream resulting in one of the most delicious milkshakes I have ever encountered! Enjoy, and try not to hum that jingle. I dare you!
The availability, at the local fresh fruit market, of the most succulent cherries I have ever seen is the inspiration for this beautiful and delicious cherry vanilla coffee shake. Of course, if you can't find fresh cherries, the frozen variety will substitute nicely. Enjoy!
The summertime temperatures are still raging. Why not try a scrumptious coffee milkshake prepared specially for all of you bourbon lovers out there? It will undoubtedly help cool you off while the heat is most definitely still on. Enjoy!
Iced and blended with a touch of apricot and vanilla, this frappe is sure to chill you out on those hot-hot summer days! Today I am using Organically Grown Peru Dark Roast coffee for my frappe. The subtle apricot and vanilla tones of the coffee perfectly compliment the home-made apricot syrup. Best of all this coffee is Smithsonian Certified shade-grown and Bird Friendly. It is also a featured single-origin for August 2019 at TheQueenBean.com. To learn more about this wonderful bean click here.

I love growing honeysuckle in my garden -- that smell and remarkable beauty! I recently discovered that when used to create a simple syrup and combined with coffee, the edible nectar of the fragrant flower imparts a subtle depth of sweetness. The impact is a delight for the senses. The distinctive aroma of honeysuckle carried on a summer breeze combined with a unique blast of subtly sweet flavor; as charming and tantalizing a combination, as this latte is easy to prepare. Enjoy!
Coconut rum, sun-kissed nights, gentle sea breezes and slow swings on a hammock are some of my favorite summer-time moments. I'm delighted to include one more item to this list. One sip of this slightly spicy, smooth, and sweet coconut rum coffee cocktail fills your senses with the best notes of summer. Enjoy!
Cinnamon and sugar -- nothing else quite fills the senses the same way. We have captured that magic in an iced snickerdoodle latte to die for. Enjoy!
My childhood summers echoed with trips to one of the last remaining local drugstores still serving chocolate malted milkshakes at the counter. This beverage will always remind me of that summertime feeling of long sun-kissed days and nights dripping with possibilities. The malted milkshake has a long history in the USA, made popular as a staple at Walgreens drug store in the 1920s, it soon could be found at many soda fountains and ice cream parlors nationwide. Here is my coffee filled take on the traditional chocolate malted milkshake. Enjoy!
