The ingredients for iced lemon coffee are fairly easy to gather. All you need is 1/4 cup of ice cubes, 1 cup of cold-brewed coffee, 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1 slice of lemon for garnishing, fresh espresso or strong brewed coffee, white sugar, honey, or any other sweetener of your choice. But as far as the question of what kind of coffee beans to use for the brew, how about giving the Signature Cold Brew Blend from one of the best coffee brand in India a shot? A blend specially crafted for coffee to be enjoyed cold.
Step 1: Pouring Ice Into A Tall Glass
The first step is the simple task of adding ice to a tall glass or mug. But if you prefer to add some coffee ice cubes to achieve a stronger beverage then that works fine too!
Step 2: Preparing A Strong Cup Of Coffee
Ideally it is advisable to try this beverage using an espresso. If you do know how to concoct an espresso then perhaps our guide to home espresso can help you. Besides that, you can try lemon coffee by brewing yourself a strong cup of coffee tweaked to your ratio of liking.
Step 3: Sweeting The Deal
Once you are done with your brew, pour it into a bowl while hot and mix the sweetener of your choice. After you are satisfied with your mixing process, let it cool for a while.
Step 4: The Glass Needs To Fill
After a while, check if the mixture has cooled down. If it has, then the next thing you need to do is to pour it over the ice into the glass.
Step 5. Time For The Lemon Juice
For the fifth step, you need to add freshly squeezed lemon juice into the glass. We suggest adding half a lemon (about 1 tbsp of juice), but you must also keep your personal affinity for sour flavours into account. So, be sure to whisk, taste, and make adjustments if necessary!
Step 6. Adding A Slice Of Lemon For Flair
If you want, add a slice of lemon as a garnish. Congratulations, you are now ready to sip on your own iced lemon coffee freshly prepared in the comforts of your home!
We hope you like this simple recipe for lemon coffee! It's surprisingly tasty and easy to make. The rich flavour of espresso is enhanced by the crisp acidity of a squeeze of lemon, and drinking the entire thing over ice is quite refreshing.
