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.

  • 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.
