Favourite Summer Drink Recipes

The days are getting warmer so your drinks should be getting cooler - here are our favourite ice cold drinks to beat the heat! This recipe is alcohol free for the kids (doesn’t mean you can’t add a little something though!). Not a fan of Watermelon? Don’t worry, just swap the syrup with another flavour from our huge range of Monin syrups. Maybe Raspberry? Or Mint? Personalise this refreshing recipe and tell us how you get on. 

Sparkling Watermelonade

 

Ingredients:

1 glass of sparkling lemonade

2 shots of Monin Watermelon syrup

2 handfuls of ice cubes

Sliced fruit (optional)

Method:

Pour the lemonade and ice cubes into the blender, then blend until crushed. Add the watermelon syrup and mix. Garnish with fruit and serve immediately.

Don’t fancy  a fruity drink just yet? Time to bring your mug of coffee back! How about trying out this new easy way to make an iced coffee at home? It only takes 5 minutes and no unusual equipment required. All you need is your favourite espresso beans (we suggest Lavazza Super Crema), milk, optional flavouring and ice! If you like it creamy, then add more milk. If you like it sweet, add more sugar. If you want it flavoured then add some syrup. It’s your drink, make it how you like it.

Iced Espresso

 

Ingredients:

14g double espresso (Preferably Lavazza Super Crema)

1 cup of cold milk

Sugar or coffee flavouring (optional, see our enormous range flavouring syrups)

1 handful of ice

Method:

Transfer your double espresso (made with 14g of coffee beans) into a long glass. Take 1 cup of your preferred type of cold milk and slowly pour over the espresso, making sure you leave enough room for the ice. If you opted for your iced coffee to be flavoured, then take 2oz of your favourite flavouring and pour into the glass. If you want it sweetened then add some sugar and mix. Put 1 large handful of ice, either crushed of whole, in your espresso. VOILA!!! You’ve just made yourself your very own iced coffee. Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the summer.
