Grapefruit + Mint Spritzer.

If you’re looking for a light and refreshing beverage full of flavor, you’ll love this simple how-to recipe for mixing your own Grapefruit and Mint Spritzer. Full of bubbly effervescence, this drink is great for a brunch as it’s beautiful in color and with the mint garnish.

During the summer months, there’s nothing like a tall glass of ice cold water to quench your thirst. But if I am ever craving more flavor, this spritzer is a drink that satisfies my thirst and flavor palette on those hot and humid days.

There’s just something about how mint compliments citrus that makes this drink so delicious to me. When I used to visit my Grandmother as a child, she would make homemade lemonade and add in a few mint leaves to my glass. This citrus + mint combo is one that I love to recreate in different drinks, especially during the summer time. She actually had a grapefruit tree growing right out side her front door (in South Florida) and we’d often times walk right outside and pick one for breakfast in the morning.

I love using the mint simple syrup recipe in this spritzer because it adds the perfect amount of sweetness to the spritzer’s tang and fizz. For an even mintier flavor, enjoy this spritzer over fresh mint ice cubes. You could even take this one up a notch and turn it into a cocktail by substituting the seltzer water with Prosecco. But I just love styling with these Boylan Seltzers, they’re so well designed, tasty and have some fun cane sugar beverages (and more).

Coconut Milk Cold Brew Coffee.

If you happen to be a busy mom of three + an entrepreneur like myself then you know life is equal parts rewarding and chaos at any given moment. Treating myself and getting a kickstart in the morning always involves a big 'ole cup of coffee, no matter what.

While we lived at the farm I didn't have the city conveniences of stopping by my local coffeeshop to grab a large cup. But it sure was peaceful waking up each morning with a wide open field out our front window and the little lake out the back. Pros + cons as they say. The other big "pro" was that I was forced to learn to make my own (good) coffee, not something I had mastered in the past. And, I even learned to enjoy a hearty cup of cold brew coffee, perfect for the hot summer mornings here in the South.

I teamed up with my friends over at Chameleon Cold-Brew to bring you this simple + delicious recipe for Coconut Milk Cold Brew Coffee. While I have so many variations on this recipe (like using anything from almond milk to heavy cream as my mixer) this is my straightforward go-to most mornings when I'm enjoying cold brew.

For the Cold Brew

instructions:

How to cook Coconut Milk Cold Brew Coffee

  1. In a large cup, pour 1 cup of cold brew coffee and mix in 1/2 cup ice cold water, stir together. Remember, this comes as a concentrate so mixing in equal parts coffee concentrate and liquid will ensure the perfect drink. Add 1" frozen ice cube to your cup and pour over the 1/2 cup coconut milk. You can leave it your milk on top or stir in if you prefer. Sip and enjoy!

To say this is super simple is an understatement but the flavor and richness of the cold brew coffee is so, so good. And, you don't have to waste your time with the overnight process of making your own cold brew. You know I'm a fan of homemade but when the taste isn't any different and it's so much easier + more convenient than I'd rather save my time here and put it into making a homemade biscuit to go with coffee if you know what I mean.

The other great thing I love about Chameleon Cold-Brew is the flavor choices. I'm a go-to on Vanilla usually but for some reason I gave the mocha a try and I'm so glad I did. It is so rich in flavor and really blends so well with the coconut flavor in the milk. Cold brew is also much less acidic which is great all around for your teeth, health and flavor profile of your coffee. A win/win/win.

Love to know your favorite way to enjoy cold brew and love for you to give this one a try!
