Celebrate Labor Day with a Special Coffee

Here is a fun little summer drink idea... a special tribute to the last lazy days of Summer as Labor Day rolls around again...

Brew a pot of coffee and fill an ice cube tray with it.

Place the tray in the freezer and leave for several hours or over night, until the coffee cubes are frozen solid.

Then, when you are ready for a lovely cold drink on a hot Summer day, remove several cubes from the tray and place them in a large drinking glass.

Cover them with your favorite milk.  I used unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze, about 8 ounces.

The coffee cubes melt slowly as you sip and give your milk a really nice light coffee flavor.  The longer you can leave it before you start drinking it, the more the ice will melt and the more coffee flavor your drink will have.

And, if you still have some iced coffee cubes left in your glass when the milk is about half gone...

fill up the glass with hot coffee.  The frozen coffee cubes melt quickly into the hot coffee, cooling it, and the Almond Breeze gives it a rich and creamy texture!

Can you think of other ways to enjoy these iced coffee cubes?

Do you think this might work with flavored teas as well?
