DALGONA COFFEE

Food

//Hello everyone ~ and Happy Midsummer if you are living in the UK!

Today is officially the first day of summer in the UK and the longest day of the year <3. The weather has been absolutely beautiful the past few weeks and I’ve spend so many of my lunch breaks and evenings sat in the garden in the sun, happy that’s it’s so warm and bright.

When the weather gets so nice, one of the things I really enjoy drinking is an iced coffee – a ‘Dolgona Coffee’ to be precise! I find them super refreshing and sweet and I think they are the perfect summer drink, so…I thought I’d share with you how I make mine! (p.s it’s insanely simple!) ~

All you need is sugar (or a sweetener alternative), milk of your choosing, coffee and a very small amount of boiling water.

In this photo I’ve used a type of sweetener as an example that you don’t necessarily need to use sugar! I’m also using soya milk but you could experiment with other milks

Firstly, add three table spoons of instant coffee into a mixing bowl along with 2 table spoons of sugar and a small amount of hot water. Then, whisk together in a fast and continuous motion until the mixture becomes light, airy and fluffy (this can take a while if you are doing it by hand)!

One you have the desired mixture, poor cold milk into a glass with ice but make sure you leave enough room to place the coffee mixture on top. Using a tea spoon, scoop up the coffee mixture and gently place it on top of the milk and it should sit on top without sinking, like in the image below.

Stir thoroughly before drinking and enjoy!

So cuteee!

You can also have this drink hot! For a hot coffee, warm the milk and poor it into a heatproof glass ❤ following all the other steps as before.

This is a really cute and fun drink to create that really makes it feel like summer. It’s really easy to make and due to it’s sweet taste it’s likely even going to be enjoyed by non-coffee lovers! I plan to have them all summer long :)//

Homemade Cocktails and Pizza

Food

Hello everybody, it’s been a hot minute!

On Saturday I visited a couple of friends and we had a fabulous evening of making our own cocktails and pizza!

We all bought our own mixers and cocktail ingredients and ended up with our own versions of various cocktails such as a daiquiri and a pornstar martini.

Honestly, quite successful over all haha! We had a few sad attempts because we were estimating the amounts of alcohol but we ended up with some delicious drinks ~ we even garnished the glasses with little bits of melon and strawberry for fun ❤

We also made our own pizza in the pizza oven my friend owns and OMG they were insanely tasty. Like REALLY good. I made mine with goats cheese, mozzarella, olives and mushrooms and it may not have looked the prettiest but it certainly tasted amazing (trust me!).

I was so excited to eat I had already taken a slice before I remembered to take a photo! x

And as if pizza isn’t filling enough…we also tucked in to a homemade cookie and caramel ice cream bake :D! We never managed to finish the entire thing though, but we certainly tried ~

I mean come ON! *-*

Hope all your days are going well and you are all eating the most delicious food.
