Mint Iced Coffee Latte

Mint Iced Coffee Latte 

I am certainly not a morning person and the only coping mechanism I have for an early morning is my cup of coffee. As someone so eloquently said, " My morning coffee makes me feel I got my shit together. I DON'T. But it feels like it." But monotony gets a little boring and so I decided to experiment yet another variety of coffee. Each variety of coffee compliments a particular activity the best. The freshness offered in this recipe because of mint makes it the perfect drink to enjoy while reading your favourite book in the balcony whilst enjoying the summer heat.

Being a willing participant in this Lockdown's got talent, I have experimented various types of coffee (from Dalgona to Frappes). This recipe enhanced the fresh aroma of coffee along with mint and hence became a very calming drink for me. I hope this drink serves the same for you and becomes your companion for "Me Time" or just a great excuse for your family to bond over.
