Vanilla & Raspberry Cold Coffee

“Winter turns to spring
And white into color,
Bringing out those smiles
Stored specially for summer.
Sun kissed fruits
And playgrounds of noise,
Watch the fun, or join in
That’s just your choice.
Teasing with its looks
This drink so fresh,
Flirts with your mind
And plays with your dress.
Hot is out, iced becomes in
Droplets small, syrups new
Each sip from the straw
Creates a new born you.”

2 cups whole milk
7-8 espresso ice cubes
1 tablespoon brown sugar (adjust per taste)
2 teaspoons instant coffee (I used Nescafe)
2 tablespoons vanilla coffee creamer (or 1 teaspoon vanilla essence mixed in 2 tablespoon heavy cream)
¼ cup fresh raspberries
Put the milk, instant coffee powder, sugar, raspberries, vanilla and 1-2 espresso cubes in a blender and blend for a quick minute. Serve immediately in a tall glass filled with the remaining espresso cubes. Simple, and oh-so refreshing!
