The first thing that anyone should know about an espresso beverage is the fact that espresso can be used, re-used, and re-used over again in order to make the perfect beverage for your taste buds! Indeed, espresso is such a delightful coffee drink that there are so many ways to squeeze out a different espresso recipe every time. If you are going to become an expert in making espresso beverages then chances are that you already know how fine or coarse you need to grind the espresso coffee beans. Unless you leave the grinding up to the actual espresso machine, grinding the espresso coffee beans is one of the foremost duties one has to do in order to get the espresso taste just right!
After one has perfected the art of making espresso beverages, though, one fun thing to do is to move onto bigger and better beverages that are also made from the espresso base. For example, a latte is just one of the recipes that can be made from espressos, but a chilled espresso beverage is also another way in which one can have a fun beverage. Let’s face it: even though espresso drinks are typically consumed as warm or hot beverages, there are plenty of other ways to combine espresso in order to turn it into a better drink for some people. One of those ways is by making a chilled espresso beverage, and here are the directions for accomplishing just that:
Make the Espresso
Of course, the first and foremost thing that you will want to do when making a chilled espresso beverage is to make the espresso itself. If you are an expert at making espressos anyway then the best thing to do would be to simply grind the espresso coffee beans just as you would for a normal espresso.
After the espresso is made, though, the next thing that should be done is to add ice to a blender or other type of food grinder. A blender really works best for this part, however, especially because blenders are made to allow easier access of food in and out of the compartment. Nevertheless, a large scoopful of ice should be added to the blender.
Add Other Ingredients
The next thing that one will want to do when creating their chilled espresso beverage is to add a bit of sugar to the espresso itself. Because the espresso is already sweetened there will only be a couple tablespoons of sugar that needs to be added. But after the sugar is added and completely stirred then the whole espresso beverage should be added on top of the ice in the blender. The only thing that is left to do for the beverage is to grind and combine the two ingredients.
