Mint Mojito Iced Coffee

I went to Philz Coffee the other day, and my friend suggested I try the mint mojito iced coffee. And Oh My, I found my new favorite iced coffee. Well, I know the creaminess comes from cream, and it's not good for me on an everyday basis, but the minty, sweet, creamy drink is so refreshing and is perfect on a hot day.

Here is my skinnier take on this yummy iced coffee.

Ingredients:

  • 8 mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon raw cane sugar (or some sweetener)
  • 1 cup (2½ dl) brewed coffee
  • 1-2 splash non-fat milk - you can use whole milk, half and half if you like your coffee creamier
  • ice cubes (make ice cubes of coffee if you don' want your drink watered-down)

Directions:

Brew the coffee to you’re liking, I brewed mine in my CafeSolo coffee maker, which is pretty much the same as a french press. Put mint and sugar in a tall glass and using a muddler, or the back of a spoon, muddle the mint with the sugar so the oils are released which gives you the lovely minty taste and smell. If you don’t muddle/bruise the mint, you won't get the intense minty flavor in your coffee.

Pour the hot coffee over the mint/sugar mixture and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add Ice cubes and milk, and stir again. Garnish with a sprig of mint.

Enjoy.

 Now the danish version:

Mint Mojito Iced Coffee

Ingredients:

  • 8 mynte blade
  • 1 spsk rørsukker eller lidt sødemiddel
  • 2½ dl friskbrygget kaffe 
  • 1 sjat skummetmælk - Du kan også bruge sødmælk eller kaffefløde hvis du vil have en mere cremet kaffe
  • isterninger (lav evt. isterrninger ud af kaffe, så din kaffe ikke bliver vandet)

Directions:

Bryg din kaffe som du best kan lide den. Jeg lavede min kaffe i min EvaSolo kande, hvilket er ca. det samme som når man brygger kaffen i en stempelkande.

Kom sukker og mynte i et højt glas, og knus/massér bladene så olierne frigives. Hvis du ikke får masseret bladene ordentligt, så får du ikke den intense mint smag. Hæld den varme kaffe over sukker-mynteblandingen og rør indtil sukkeret er opløst. Kom isterninger og mælk i og rør endnu engang. Pynt glasset med et friskt mynteblad.

Velbekomme.
