    1. I actually drink iced tea unadulterated most of the time but, nothing’s refreshes me more than a tall glass of good Southern Sweet tea after doing garden work on a hot summer day:)

  1. I love my daily late afternoon libations but, like you, a yummy espresso drink will always win out. When we lived in Key West, I really got into Cuban espresso drinks, especially a Cortadito expertly brewed by The Cuban Coffee Queen up at Key West Bight. Nowadays, I must make my own, which is close but, lacking that wonderful waterview:)

    Cuban Coffee – Cortadito
    1 cup of water
    8 tablespoons of finely ground Cuban Coffee (Cafe Bustelo, Pilon, etc)
    8 – 12 tablespoons of Demerara sugar (or sugar in the raw)
    2 cups of hot milk

    Put the coffee into the Espresso filter basket in your espresso maker along with 1 cup of cold water into the bottom canister.

    Screw the top spout on tight and plug in your electric espresso maker or place your manual espresso maker directly on the burner on medium heat for a nice slow steep.

    While the coffee is steeping pour sugar into some sort of glass container (2-cup Pyrex measuring cup works nicely) that has a spout on it and as soon as the coffee is brewed take 1/4 cup if the coffee and pour it into the glass container and whisk furiously until it becomes a creamy light brown sugary paste.

    Once the sugar and coffee is mixed and the coffee is finished brewing, pour the remaining amount of coffee into the glass container and heat up the milk. Fill up half the amount of your coffee cup with the hot milk and the other half with your Cuban coffee sugar mixture.
    Enjoy its strong, sweet, creamy heavenly goodness in a cup☕️

    Of late, I am very into a French Mojito made with Saint-Germain elderflower liquer.

    à ta santé, Osyth
