A Summer Coffee Recipe That's Fit for a Queen

Our Queen will be turning 96 years old on June 12th, and what better way to celebrate it than by introducing one or two drinks to your menu to mark the special occasion! First of all....

Toffee Espresso Frappé

This drink also looks to be the perfect treat for Father’s Day on Sunday 20th of June:

  • Ice + milk
  • Single espresso shot (we recommend our Barbosa Original)
  • 2 pumps of toffee Syrup
  • 1 scoop of vanilla frappé

Step by step, you’ll need to fill the glass with ice, before pouring your espresso shot over the ice cubes, then fill the glass with milk until you get to 1cm below the top. 

Add the contents into a blender jar, along with the frappé and syrup. Secure the lid tightly, and watch it blend until it's creamy smooth! Lastly, just pour the contents into a glass and finish with a lovely swirl of whipped cream (optional)... voila! 

Raspberry Coconut Frappé

My personal favourite as it’s so refreshing on a summer’s day! Enjoy…

  • Ice + Coconut milk
  • 2 pumps Raspberry syrup
  • 1 scoop of vanilla frappé
  • Whipped cream 
  • Raspberry purée to drizzle 
  • Mini rainbow beans

Firstly, fill the entire cup up with ice, especially if the weather is over 23C! Pour the milk over the ice (1cm from the top). Secondly, pour the contents into the blender, make sure the lid is firmly on and sit tight until it’s nice and smooth! If you want to enjoy it even more, then make sure you add a whirl of whipped cream, a drizzle of purée and a sprinkling of beans. 

Onto a notable point… Many coffee companies menus are featuring the return of the summer’s day classic, Peach Iced Tea, so expect a high demand for that fruity drink this summer! You can find the recipe on sweetbird.com with real fruit juice, and black tea extract. 

I highly doubt that the Queen will make these herself, but I’m sure she’d enjoy them if she was to try one! You can find hundreds more of these recipes at sweetbird.com, but these are our favourites for this 2021 summer! 

Wishing Queen Elizabeth a very happy Birthday from all of us here at Herbert & Ward!
