Iced Mint Coffee
I left my heart in San Francisco . . . and with it one of the most delicious coffee drinks ever! My cousins introduced me to Philz Mint Mojito! It is amazing. I would dream about this delicious drink and wake up craving it! So I started the quest to recreate this drink. After trial and error, I think I found something that can satisfy that craving. It is super easy and delicious!
Nice yummy coffee beans. (Freshly grind and brew)
*Double or triple amount to make more concentrated flavor.
Fresh mint leaves
Half & Half (milk of choice)
Prepare coffee and brew. Muddle the mint and brown sugar together. (Basically smash. The mint will become super fragrant). Once the coffee is ready, mix it with the mint and sugar mixture. Add the cream. Then get a glass with ice then pour the coffee over it. Voila, happiness in a cup. I like making a bigger batch and placing it in the fridge to get a more robust flavor over the next day or two. This is definitely a yummy treat that makes me feel closer to my family and first home.

Between family and friends, so many special memories and traditions were made around food. She enjoys learning new flavors and trying new restaurants. Thanks to past strong and specific pregnancy cravings with her last baby, her passion hit a new level. Her favorite thing to do when the kids are asleep, is to look up new restaurants and peruse the menu as well as looking up many new recipes to try (oh that Pinterest and Facebook feed!). Cooking and baking are her meditation and art. She shares her love of food with her kiddos and hopes to create lasting memories and traditions for them.
