Sweet 16th: Greek style coffee

Good morning friends and Happy Father's Day to all you gents out there!

Today's Sweet is a delicious shaken frothy iced coffee drink which personally, I make in a martini shaker.  Cause it's fun.  (You can shake this up in any kind of drink shaker but the martini shaker is what I have)  Also, what better way to start your day than with James Bond coffee: shaken not stirred.

This s a very simple recipe so lets get to it!

All you need is:
instant coffee (yes I know, but seriously, and nescafe works the best)
milk (optional)

The ratios for this are for a 16oz glass.

Start with 4 teaspoons of instant coffee and 4 teaspoons of sugar.  (You can use more or less sugar depending on how sweet you like your coffee.)

Put the coffee and sugar into a shaker with 3 Tablespoons of water.

Set it aside for just a moment and fill a large glass with ice.

Hang on,  let me fix something...

That's better!

Now shake that shaker! You want the contents to turn into a smooth froth.  Pour it over the ice.

Add a little cold water.

Then add a little milk if you like and give it a quick stir with a straw.
Then enjoy!

Time flies

Holy cow you guys it's June!   Where has the time gone? (side note: I originally had a typo in my title that made it time fries.  I almost left it.)

June is a big month this year.  Who am I kidding,  it's a big month every year. 

First up I've got Brass Screw Confederacy which will consist of a combination of hat selling and birthday celebrations. Not to mention crazy get-ups! 

Next a boring but necessary line up of family dentist appointments.

Followed by my own birthday and my hubby's birthday.

Top it all off with the Buckley Log Show

Sprinkle in the occasional swim lesson, father's day and whatever else pops up and that's pretty much how my month is looking.

Man, just when I was starting to feel a little less stressed out. 

Welp, back to work!  I have hats to finish and a skirt to hem!
