Beating the Summer Heat with Tasty Coffee Drinks

By KSEE News, June 21, 2011

Summer is here along with triple digit temperatures. This morning on KSEE Sunrise we got some great tips on beating the heat from two-time National Barista Champion Heather Perry.

Perry's summer homemade lattes cost pennies on the dollar compared to drinks from national coffee chains. Plus, Perry offers kid-friendly, "espresso-free" recipes so that the whole family can enjoy her unique drinks.

Perry says people don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on an espresso machine to make the perfect latte. She says making a strong brewed coffee with a French Press by using cold water and letting the coffee and water sit for 24 hours.

Here are three of the recipes featured on KSEE Sunrise this morning. For more refreshing recipes with or without caffeine go to GOT MILK?

Red Velvet Frappe
Tastes just like the cupcakes! Perry's drinkable version of this velvety delight takes minutes to make. Just blend milk, espresso and cocoa with ice cream and enjoy!

Tiramisu Shake
This multi-layered richness will give you the quick pick me up you'll need to carry you through the longer days of summer. Combine milk with cool espresso, Mascarpone cheese and vanilla ice cream, layer with whipped cream, dust with cocoa and top with ladyfingers for the perfect summer Italian treat!

Cooling Coconut Cream
For a tropical paradise escape, combine espresso, simple syrup, milk, coconut milk and blend with ice.
