6 Best Coffee Drink Recipe Ideas You Need to Try

6 Best Coffee Drink Recipe Ideas You Need to Try

If you are tired of drinking the same coffee each morning, take a chance with any of these creative ways to get your daily dose of caffeine. Whether you like hot coffee, iced coffee, or something that is closer to a milkshake, you’ll find something that you like on this list. Chances are that if you are already drinking coffee on a daily basis, you will already have most of the ingredients at home already, and if you’re new to coffee, you may just find something that is your new go-to drink!

1. Thai Iced Coffee

You’ll Need:

  • Crushed Ice
  • 1 teaspoon of almond flavoring
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cardamom
  • 4 tablespoons of heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar

How to Make:

Mix the ground cardamom and ground coffee, and then brew. When it has finished brewing, add the sugar and almond flavor. Mix well and allow the coffee to reach a lukewarm temperature.

Fill four highball glasses halfway with crushed ice and then 2/3 with the coffee. Add 1 teaspoon of heavy cream to each glass.

If you would like the layered effect in the cup, hold a spoon above the coffee and pour the cream slowly onto the spoon so the cream will float to the top. These proportions will make 4 servings.

2. Black Magic Coffee

You’ll Need:

  • 10oz of freshly brewed black coffee
  • ¼ teaspoon of chocolate extract
  • ¼ teaspoon of hazelnut extract
  • ¼ teaspoon of rum extract
  • Your choice of sugar substitute, like Splenda

How to Make:

Pour the freshly brewed coffee into your mug. Add the chocolate, hazelnut, and rum extracts to taste, you may not use all 1/4 teaspoon of each. Add your sweetener, stir, and enjoy!

3. Cortissimo Shot

Use this as a base for a number of other drinks.

You’ll Need:

20g fine ground coffee per shot.

How to Make:

Extract with hot water under high pressure. Aim for a quick extraction. Tamp the coffee firmly to maximize this process. 0.7oz should be extracted per shot. Crema will be golden brown with a taste that is sweet. Top with foamed milk to make a Cortado or flat white coffee and serve in a regular cup.

4. Creamy Iced Vanilla Caramel Coffee

You’ll Need:

  • 4 cups of cold or room temperature brewed coffee
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/3 cup of french vanilla non-dairy creamer
  • ¼ cup of caramel ice cream topping
  • 3 cups of crushed ice
  • Canned whip cream, if desired

How to Make:

Pour coffee, milk, creamer, caramel topping, and crushed ice into a blender. Blend together on high until it is all completely smooth. Divide into 4 glasses and top with whipped cream if desired, and serve immediately.

5. Gingerbread Coffee

You’ll Need:

  • Boiling water
  • Hot milk
  • 3 tablespoons of coarse ground coffee beans
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground allspice
  • ½ teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of molasses

How to Make:

Put all of the ingredients, except the water and the milk, into a 12oz press pot. Add the boiling water and stir with either a wooden spoon handle or chopstick. Replace the lid and brew for 4 minutes. Press the plunger and pour the coffee into your cup. Add your desired amount of milk to taste.

If you prefer to make this with drip coffee, you will brew the coffee first and then stir in the spices and molasses. Strain this into your cup and then add milk if desired.

6. Coffee Imperial

You’ll Need:

  • 6 cups of freshly brewed strong coffee
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • ½ cup of heavy cream
  • Sugar to taste
  • Crushed ice
  • Whipped cream, if desired
  • Cinnamon, to garnish

How to Make:

Add the cinnamon sticks to the hot coffee and allow it to sit for 1 hour, then remove the sticks. Add sugar to coffee to taste, and then add the heavy cream. Allow to chill. Pour this mixture into a tall glass filled with ice. Top with whipped cream and just a sprinkle of cinnamon if desired.

10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
