5 CITRUSY ICED COFFEE RECIPES TO KEEP YOU ENERGIZED AND ALERT!

If you’re craving something fresh, zesty, and energizing in the morning, but lemonade doesn’t do it for you, here’s a bold idea: add citrus juice in your coffee.

You could enjoy them separately, but this combo is unlike anything you’ve tasted before. The sour lemon/lime flavor complements the bitterness of the coffee, adding a fun twist to a regular morning.

Read on to find 5 citrus-infused iced coffee recipes perfect for busy mornings and hot summer days.

SWEET CITRUS COLD BREW COFFEE

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup of coarsely ground Sträva Ethiopia Single Origin (1 cup of whole beans)

  • Candied citrus peel for garnish
  • Sweetener
  • Ice cubes

Instructions:

In an airtight container, combine the coffee grinds and water and leave in the fridge for 12-16 hours. Once the cold brew coffee is ready, strain it with a nut milk bag into a container. Fill two glasses with ice and pour the sweetened citrus juice. Pour the coffee on top and stir to combine. Garnish with candied citrus peel and serve immediately.

Sträva tip: Make coffee ice cubes or freeze citrus juice into ice cubes to avoid watering down your coffee with regular ice.

Fill two glasses with ice, pour the lime syrup, lime slices, and sparkling or tonic water. Next, add the chilled espresso or cold brew. Stir to combine, garnish with lime slices and lime zest, and enjoy immediately.
