bramble Ice

Ice Beverage

I had a few frozen blackberries left in the frozen mixed berries pack, so I decided to make this drink tonight.
I had just watched a video that explained how to make crushed ice – to smash ice in a bag with a hammer. Unfortunately, that didn’t go too well so I just did the usual with a spoon.
This is super simple to make – try it yourself :)

2 oz. gin
3/4 oz. lemon juice
3/4 oz. simple syrup
Blackberries

1. Muddle blackberries in glass
2. Add crushed ice
3. Pour in bramble mix (gin + lemon juice + simple syrup)
4. Garnish with blackberry

Greek-Style Frappe

Frappe with Catcher Classico CoffeeFor the Greek who lives by this sensationally frothy iced coffee frappe and the non-Greek start who pledges by it, the way they drink their frappe—one, two, or more teaspoons (level, circular, or heaping) of coffee; with milk or black; unsweetened, medium-sweet, or super-sugary—is a issue of personal sign. Setting down exact amounts for its groundwork thus contradicts the frappe spirit. The amounts suggested underneath are best utilised only as a exodus issue; changes should then be made according to individual flavour and mood.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 teaspoons Cassico coffee
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Cold water
  • Ice cubes
  • 2 tablespoons evaporated or regular milk

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place the coffee, sugar, and 2 tablespoons cold water in a shaker, jar, blender, or drink mixer. Cover and shake well for 30 seconds, or, if using a blender, drink mixer, or handheld frother, mix for 15 seconds to produce a thick, light-brown foam.
  2. Place a few ice cubes in a tall glass. Slowly pour the coffee foam into the glass. Fill the glass with water, adding milk if desired. Serve the frappe immediately with a thin, flexible straw and glass of cold water on the side.
