Drink of the Week

With all of this warm summer weather lingering on, a batch of iced coffee is sounding just right to us, so this Friday’s Drink of the Week comes from the Drunken Monkey Coffee Bar in Orlando, Fla., where the staff is keeping locals cool and caffeinated with their "Mojo Jojo":

1 cup cold milk
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cinnamon stick
5 cups freshly brewed coffee
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Break up cinnamon stick and add to milk. Steam milk and let cinnamon steep in hot milk for 10 minutes. (If you don’t have an espresso machine with a steam wand, you can heat the milk in a pot on the stove for one minute and let it steep with the cinnamon for the additional 10 minutes.) Strain cinnamon out of milk and mix milk with remaining ingredients. Stir well and pour into ice-filled glasses. Makes about 1 1/2 liters.

As always, if you have a favorite drink of the moment, send us an e-mail with your pick. It may become our Drink of the Week!
