Cool off with Café con Miel, Iced Spanish Honey-Coffee

Miel means honey in Spanish and Café con Miel is a drink that has been widely enjoyed as an afternoon pick-me-up or an evening dessert for generations of Spaniards. Like much of the country, our summer temperatures have been hovering in the high-90s and triple-digits and few things are more pleasant on such days than cooling off with a rich, flavorful Café con Miel over ice.

With only four ingredients — espresso or strong coffee, a single-source artisanal honey such as Buzz Savories, milk, and a spice of your choice – cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, or nutmeg —

Miel is fast and simple to make. You can also use whole milk, 2% or non-fat milk as well as oat soy, almond or coconut milk depending on your needs or preference.

Equipment

  • espresso machine optional
  • cocktail shaker or pint jar
  • milk frother (optional)

What You'll Need:

  • ¼ cup espresso, strong coffee or a powdered espresso mix
  • 2 Tb. Buzz Savories artisanal honey
  • 1 Tb. very hot water
  • 1 cup milk If serving a hot Miel, warm the milk to a simmer
  • 2 pinches cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, or cloves grate fresh or buy powdered spice
  • 6 cubes ice for making iced Miel

How To Prepare:

  • Make honey syrup by adding 1 Tb. very hot water to 2 Tb. Buzz Savories honey. Stir until honey is completely blended with the hot water. Pour honey blend into a cocktail shaker or pint jar.
  • Froth the milk or shake the milk in a cocktail shaker or glass jar with lid until it is bubbly. Shake vigorously.
  • Make espresso, and combine with the bubbly milk.
  • For hot Miel, heat milk to a simmer and froth it with a milk frother or immersion blender, or pour into a pint jar and shake vigorously. Shaking or frothing increases the air in the milk and the consistency gains a mouth- feel of cream. Dust lightly with cinnamon.
  • For iced Miel, froth cold milk and combine with honey and coffee into a cocktail shaker or pint jar with lid. Add 4-6 ice cubes and shake vigourously. Pour into two 8 oz. glasses. Dust with a spice of your choice and serve.
